Partners for Active Living is hosting the RunDOWNTOWN 5K on Saturday, May 18, with proceeds benefiting the OneSpartanburg beautification efforts in downtown Spartanburg and Keep OneSpartanburg Beautiful.
The race will start and finish at the corner of Spring and Broad streets downtown, with runners hitting the pavement at 10:00 am. Post-race, awards will be given to the top finishers at the FR8yard.
Adult tickets are $25, and children under 14 can run for free. Tickets for children between 14-18 are $10.
Keep OneSpartanburg Beautiful is tackling the problem of litter by coordinating volunteer roadside cleanups and promoting anti-litter education across the county. The effort is inspired by the OneSpartanburg community assessment, showing residents believe an improved community appearance increases the health, safety and quality of life, along with the potential for countywide economic growth and development.
