The Eighth Annual St. Paul Village Community Walk and 5K Run was held at McDougle Middle School, 900 Old Fayetteville Road in Chapel Hill, NC on Saturday, March 7, 2020 starting at 9:00 a.m. Participants ran/walked through three neighborhoods in Carrboro during the 3.1 mile course.
The event featured electronic timing by Cardinal Track Services, an awards ceremony with prizes for winners, the top 3 overall female and male winners received prizes and medals. Additionally, there were 14 different age groups in which each female and male was awarded $25 gift cards. There was a family friendly atmosphere with games and entertainment for all ages and light refreshments.
Every paid entrant received a free T-shirt. Early Bird registration special was open for $20/individual and $40/family until February 1, 2020. After that date the registration fees was $25 (individual) or $45 (family depending on the number of children).
Just as St. Paul Village will serve the entire community and not just the church itself, the St. Paul Village Community Walk and 5K Run will likewise benefit more than just its own fundraising effort. 10% of the proceeds will be donated to other community organizations in 2020. "We ask our members to tithe," says event organizer Anissa McLendon, "We should lead by example. We want this to truly be a community event."
