Pickens County Meals on Wheels is excited to be hosting our 3rd Annual 5K Glow Run. The race will take place in front of the McKissick Center on Hwy 93 and end at the rear of our building on Edgemont Avenue. Glow face painting will be available for purchase prior to the event. We will be holding a "Glow Attire Contest" at 7:00pm where participants are encouraged to be creative with their Glow Attire. Winners will be determined by crowds loudest cheer and awards will be given to First and Second place.
The timed race will begin at 7:30 and we welcome walkers to follow in the rear of the line up. Awards will be given to Males and Females in the First, Second and Third Place finishers in two age brackets, 25 and under & 26 and over. Post race snack will be provided along with a "selfie-station" with UV lighting to post your Glow pics on Social Media - for those Snapchat users we will have a Snapchat filter for your convenience!
Covid-19 safety precautions will be determined closer to the day of the event. Registered runners/walkers will be notified of those safety precautions via email.
Pickens County Meals on Wheels is a non-profit organization that is dedicated to making sure that no senior is left isolated or hungry. In 2020 we provided 93,500 meals to over 600 senior neighbors in Pickens County. Our budget relies on fundraising and donations to help us continue to provide meals and a friendly safety check to our homebound seniors. Thank you for your participation and we look forward to a fun and safe event!
