Two popular runs in Wilson have virtual options this year. You can sign up now for virtual 5K 10K fundraisers.
LIVE LIFE IN COLOR
RC3, Recovery Concepts Community Center (non-profit), is a community center located in Wilson for people who are in recovery from alcohol and other substances. Live Life in Color: 10K, 5K and a 1-mile fun run is an annual fundraiser for RC3. The run supports substance use prevention and recovery efforts in Wilson County.
This year, RC3 will host a virtual run, which means you can run anywhere you’d like. The timeframe for the run is 8 a.m. on Friday, Sept. 25, through 9 a.m., Sunday, Sept. 27. Families, groups and individuals will be given their own color packets to start off their runs and will be encouraged to send photos to be included on the RC3 Facebook page.
Go to Runtheeast.com to register for the event.
The Arc of Wilson’s County’s fourth annual Gobble Wobble is offering a virtual run option this year if COVID-19 restrictions force the cancellation of the Thanksgiving morning, Nov. 26 event or if runners feel safer running a virtual race.
The Arc of Wilson, a non-profit that promotes and supports all activities in Wilson County that benefit the lives of citizens with developmental disabilities living in the community, made the changes as a precaution in case a large physical event is not possible.
Runners have the option to have their virtual registration transferred to a physical registration if the event, held at the Greater Wilson Rotary Park, turns out to be possible.
The 5K race has three categories: adults and teens (13+), youth (under 13), and individuals with intellectual and/or developmental disabilities.
