About This Event
This is the second annual Run Around Downtown 5K Road Race sponsored by the Bessemer City Area Chamber of Commerce. The Chamber in conjunction with sponsors and area health practitioners will be providing health screenings, information and healthy food choices before, during and after the race. We are hoping that this will encourage people to get out and be more active and to look at the choices that they make and decide on a healthier way of living. The course is relatively flat and provides a great experience for both the serious and novice runner.
