WINTERVILLE—The Pitt Community College Center for Student Activities is seeking runners to participate in the 2018 Bulldog Run 5K and Family Fun Run, which will generate revenue for PCC student clubs and organizations.

Originally scheduled for September but delayed by Hurricane Florence, the race will take place on the college’s main campus Dec. 1. It will feature both a competitive 5K race and one-mile fun run/walk.

PCC Student Activities and Recruitment Coordinator Katelynn Speas says race day sign-in begins at 7:30 a.m. The 5K race, she said, will start at 9 a.m., and the fun run will get underway shortly thereafter. An awards ceremony is set for 10:15 a.m.

The 5K route through PCC’s campus is a USATF-certified course that begins and ends at the baseball program’s Lewis Field House. Both the 5K and run/walk will take place on flat pavement.

Medals will be awarded to the top three male and female 5K runners in seven different age categories, as well as the top overall finishers.

Those planning to participate in the Bulldog Run may pre-register online or sign up on race day, starting at 8 a.m.

The 5K/one-mile fun run entry fee is $25 for those who sign up now through race day.

Speas said runners can learn more about the Bulldog Run online. She said the site features race details, a map of the 5K course, and online registration.
