Run will light up the night

Sno-glo is added to Friday Squared schedule

By Lisa Schlichtman

A new event has been announced for the Cassville Area Chamber of Commerce's upcoming Friday Squared on July 12.

A Sno-Glo 5K run and walk will be held in conjunction with the Christmas in July theme.

"There will be snow, and there will be glow," said Mindi Artherton, chamber executive director. "We are hopeful that the run/walk will bring even more people to the downtown area during our Friday Squared event."

The race, which starts at 7:45 p.m., will begin and end around the Cassville downtown square. Cheer stations, staffed by local businesses and organizations, will be set up to light the way along the race route and encourage runners.

Each runner will receive a goody bag, which will include an official race T-shirt, their "glow" to help light the run and items and coupons donated by local businesses. T-shirts are sponsored by Security Bank, Cassville Health Care and Rehab, TH Rogers and Clay Newman.

The race entry fee is $20 per participant through July 1. After July 1, the fee increases to $25 per runner or walker.

Registration for the Sno-Glo run/walk is now open. Forms are available at the Cassville Chamber office or online at www.cassville.com. Deadline to register is 4:30 p.m. on July 12.

Awards will be presented to the top overall male and female and to the first place male and female finishers in each of the following divisions: 18 and under; 20-29; 30-39; 40-49; and 50 and older.

Friday Squared activities will begin at 7 p.m. on July 12. The movie will be shown following the Sno-Glo awards ceremony.

The Chamber is still seeking Friday Squared vendors as well as businesses that want to host a cheer station for the run.

For more information, contact the Chamber at 847-2814 or chamber@cassville.com.
