Tech Band Hosts 5K Race Saturday

The Arkansas Tech University Band of Distinction will sponsor a 5K race this weekend at Bona Dea Trail in Russellville.

The race is an annual fundraiser for the Band of Distinction, and organizers say the funds raised are used to purchase a variety of band equipment.

The race is scheduled to begin at 8 a.m. on Saturday morning, and the cost to participate is $20 the morning of the race.  Those registering before Friday will pay a reduced rate of $15 to participate.  Registration forms may be obtained by visiting Tech Fit.

Organizers say there will be prizes available for the top finishers, and participants will each receive a t-shirt for taking part in the race.
