PRINCETON — Princeton Christian Academy will host its inaugural 5K Eagle Run/Walk at 8 a.m. June 14, starting and finishing at Zearing Park in Princeton.

The purpose of the race is to raise needed funds for the school to purchase new bleachers for the PCA gymnasium. The race is open to people of all ages who will compete in several different age categories for medals. Those who prefer to walk are encouraged to participate in a non-competitive way. This is a family friendly event for all ages. Little ones who cannot run/walk a 5K distance can ride along in a stroller for free.

Several food vendors, a band and other exhibits will be set up at Zearing Park for the convenience and entertainment of the participants and supporters of the race.

Those interested in running or walking in the Eagle 5K may register online at eaglerun5k.net or on Facebook at www.facebook.com/eaglerun5k. Prizes will be awarded for best times in each category and for overall winners, and everyone who registers will get a T-shirt. Individuals, families, track teams and running clubs are invited to “run and not be weary” in Princeton Christian Academy’s Eagle Run/Walk.
