The Fourth of July holiday is not far away and if you like to run there’s 5K is just for you.

The Muskingum Recreation Center Executive Director, Beth Chapman says the Red White and Run Five K will take place at the OUZ-Zane State Campus on the Fourth of July.

" The Five K really encourages families not just individuals to get out and get active and do something, so it’s a good opportunity to really promote health and wellness in our community and being active, " said Chapman.

To register it costs just $25 and the first one hundred people will receive t-shirts. The proceeds from the run will benefit underprivileged youth in our area.

"We have different activities for kids and adults who can’t afford some of the programs that we have and we do offer a sliding fee scale for certain activities and programs and this extra funding will go towards that, " said Chapman.  

The race will start early at 8 a.m. on the fourth, and you can register the day of the event, online at their website, or visit the rec in person to sign up.
