Wednesday, June 26, 2013

The first Angie Swadley Memorial 5K run will be held in conjunction with the Purdy Festival on July 20. The event is sponsored by The Monett Times and the Cassville Democrat. Proceeds from the 5K run will go toward the Angie Swadley Memorial Scholarship.

Check-in will be from 6:45 to 7:30 a.m. The 5K will begin at 7:30 a.m., starting at the parking lot west of the baseball field in Purdy on the east side of the Purdy High School gymnasium.

From 8 to 10 a.m. a free pancake breakfast will be held in the Purdy Community Building. Those attending the breakfast must have a race identification number. At 8:15 a.m., the awards ceremony will be held.

There is a $25 registration fee to enter the race. Awards will be presented to the top three male runners and the top three female runners. Door prizes will be awarded.

Entry forms and registration fees must be received by Friday, July 5 to guarantee a T-shirt. The T-shirts can be picked up on race day. Any entries after July 5 are not eligible for a T-shirt.
