Runners and walkers can still register for the ninth annual MxCC Foundation Scholarship 5K Road Race – either online at http://www.mxccfoundation.org or in person on race day (beginning at 8:30 a.m.). The race will be held at 10 a.m. this Saturday, October 29 at Middlesex Community College, 100 Training Hill Rd., Middletown.
For the first time, the race will feature a pace car, a Jeep Liberty, driven by Garrett Birdsey, MxCC Foundation treasurer and manager of Liberty Bank’s Higganum office. He will be introduced at the starting line and then start the race about 50 yards ahead of the runners.
There will be a “Kids’ Fun Run” at 9:30 a.m., with medals for first place boy and girl, and ribbons for all other participants. Cost is $5 for children and $18 for adults. Proceeds from the race benefit student scholarships and programs at MxCC. Post-race activities include a raffle prize drawing, performance by the Pratt & Whitney Screamin’ Eagles Jazz Band, as well as an awards ceremony with light food and refreshments.
