Written by Elizabeth Davis. Posted in News & Weather

Pre-registration for the 33rd annual Gary Tillman Memorial Clocktower 5K Road Race and 2 Mile Health Walk has closed, but you can still participate in the race/walk on Saturday, August 18th.

Registration will be offered on race day from 6:30 am to 7:30 am at a cost of $35 for the 5K and $30 for the 2 Mile.

Once again this year, the event will raise funds for the Exchange Club Family Resource Center.  This organization does its part to combat child abuse in the community via the Parent Aide program, states Tina Bartleson, the Executive Director of the FRC.

The “Clocktower Race” will begin at 8 am; 5K runners will begin on Second Avenue and will run thru downtown Rome, Myrtle Hill and Clocktower Hill.  Participants in the health walk will follow a similar path, though Clocktower Hill will be omitted in favor of the Riverwalk Path.

The 5K is a chip-timed USATF-certified course, adds Bartleson.

Volunteers are also being sought to assist with the race.  To learn more about volunteer opportunities, contact the FRC at (706) 290-0764.
