Final preparations are underway for the Hawley Public Library’s seventh annual Run To Read 5K set for Saturday morning, October 7.

Promptly at 9:00 a.m., Hawley Mayor Kevin will fire the starting gun for a total of 11 different age groups from Under 10 up to 70 and Over. Each runner and walker will receive a tee-shirt.

Trophies go to the first-place overall male and female runners and medals to first, second, and third-place runners in each category and ribbons to the top three walkers in each category. Pre-registrations at $15 each are being accepted through September 30 at the Library.

Registrations October 1 through 8:45 a.m. on 5K day will be $18. Sponsorships are also available by contacting the Library at 226-4620. Here in the foreground, 5K chair Susie George indicates the starting line on the 5K map.
