The first ever “Rockin’ Run for the Arts” 5K and Fun Run, presented by the Sampson Arts Council, will take place on Saturday, October 14, 2017, 8:30am, in beautiful downtown Clinton, North Carolina. Our open-road course is a combination of flat terrain and a few hills to create a fun, but challenging run. You will ‘rock while you run’ as you encounter local musicians stationed at intervals along the way! We look forward to seeing all ages, walkers, runners and anybody willing to be a cheerleader along the way. The start-line window will open at 8:30 AM at the Vance Street Tree Park. Make sure you plan to be at the race in plenty of time to enjoy pre-race festivities including music, dancing, and warm-up stretching! Stick around after the race and enjoy the Court Square Street Fair and BBQ Cook-Off in downtown Clinton.
