Tri State Auto Group of Bridgeport proudly announces their continued sponsorship and support of the 9th Annual Barnesville Park/Rotary Lake 5k Trail Walk/Run & Fun Run. The event is slated for this Saturday, March 25 and kicks off at 9:15 a.m. The free kids' fun run begins shortly after the last participant crosses the finish line. Other long-standing important sponsors to this race include the Rotary Club of Barnesville, Emerald Pointe, and Wesbanco of Barnesville.

This challenging course offers something different from most typical 5k events. It is held completely inside Barnesville's unique, beautiful park. Participants run on the Shamrocks' Cross-Country course including the new trail, through the woods, around the lake, on the park trail. Rather than the typical, boring T-shirts, pre-registered participants have their choice of a hooded sweatshirt or a long-sleeved T-shirt. Race-day supplies will be extremely limited. Over 120 unique, hand-crafted Nature Awards will be handed out in various categories and divisions.for runners and walkers. Plenty of pizza, pepperoni rolls and other refreshments will be available to all after the race. All kids' race finishers win an award. Forecast is in the 50s!
