Dorsett Shoals Elementary School will be holding its 3rd Annual March Madness Fun Run on Saturday, February 20th at Clinton Nature Preserve. There were over 200 participants in last year’s race and the school is expecting a great turn out again this year.
The race is coordinated by the Dorsett Shoals Road Runners program with the help of Chapel Hill High School’s Naval J.R.O.T.C and Cadets from the University of North Georgia’s R.O.T.C. program. The cost of the race is $15.00 and is open to all Kindergarten through eighth grade students. Medals will be awarded to the top ten male and female runners in each grade level category. Dorsett Shoals will also have concessions for sale at the race and a live D.J. playing during the entire event.
Students can register the day of the race or they can pre-register by mailing the registration form to Dorsett Shoals by February 1st. Information including registration forms, maps of the courses, and pictures from last year’s race can be found on the Dorsett Shoals Elementary website http://dorsettshoals.dce.schoolinsites.com/ under latest news. All proceeds from this race will help support the Road Runners program at Dorsett Shoals.
