Race for the Ribbon 5K Run Saturday in Rehoboth

REHOBOTH BEACH – The 10th Race For The Ribbon 5k Run will be held this Saturday, July 15.

Back in 2008, the inaugural Race for the Ribbon was held.  After eight years of raising money for the ACS and local children with cancer, this year’s race is on course to reach the $100,000 mark.

 The 2017 race will benefit the local chapter of the American Cancer Society and the family of another young member of the community.

The fundraiser will start and finish on the corner of Wilmington Avenue and the Boardwalk in Rehoboth Beach. Once again, The Greene Turtle will host the post-race party, including a breakfast buffet, music, awards and silent auction.

The race is part of the “Summer Racing Series” for the Seashore Striders and is also, for the first time, part of the Greene Turtle 3 Race Series. All participants will receive a race t-shirt listing all gold, silver, and bronze level sponsors on the back.

Race day registration will be from 6 a.m. to 7:25 a.m. There are Unisex TECH T-Shirts at registration as supplies last.

Pre-registration online at www.seashorestriders.com is $22 through July 13 at 6 p.m. Race day registration is $25.

The awards ceremony is at 8:45 a.m.
