Race Description

WHERE: Wilson County Public Library–Main Branch, 249 W Nash Street

WHEN: Saturday, 11 May 2013

The Bookin’ It 5K is in its 4th year and is an exciting event EVERYONE can enjoy! This race is open to any human who would like to participate and support the Wilson County Public Library’s Children’s Department: from the 15-minute 5K runner to the leisure walker; from the pre-schooler who can enjoy our 1-mile fun run to the 94-year-old who can teach us all a lesson or two; from the fit athlete going for a best time to the family of four with a stroller who loves to read. EVERYONE! Volunteer, donation, and sponsorship opportunities are also available.
There is a fun run for the little people: a 1-mile race which takes place just before the main event. Our mapped 5K course takes our 5K participants through a residential area just as the trees have become lush and lovely, providing nice scenery and shade from the morning sun. Other fun children’s activities will be going on during preregistration and while runners and walkers are making their way through the course.

Don’t forget to stick around afterwards for the awards ceremony and a concert by a favorite local band, Matty Begs!
