BE[POSITIVE] 5K on September 3, 2011

The brainchild of Carroll County Recreation Track Coach Andrell Roberts, the BE[POSITIVE] 5k is open to all ages and all athletic backgrounds. Seriously. Doesn't matter if you can dash 3.1 miles (that's 5 kilometers if you want to get all metric) or if you're the type to enjoy a leisurely 3.1 mile stroll. Come on out and get a little fresh air and exercise! Connect with your neighbors or meet some new friends! We promise you'll be glad that you did! All funds raised through the event will go to the American Red Cross and the newly-formed Carroll County Cross Country Team.

The event begins at 8 a.m. on Sept. 3 at the East Carrollton Recreation Center. All participants will receive a t-shirt, with the first and second place finishers in each category receiving a medal. The cost is $15 a runner prior to Sept. 26. After that date, the cost is $20, and t-shirt size is not guaranteed.

To sign up or for more information, go to And spread the word! We're still in need of both runners and sponsors, so tell your friends and neighbors!
