ARC runs for Housing Hope
Arlington Runners Club is planning its next run to benefit Housing Hope starting 9 a.m., Saturday, Sept. 27. Due to changes with the Airport Trail system the course will be slightly different from last year’s course, but nothing significant, according to coordinator Jon Hatfield. “Because of the generosity of our sponsors — Stillaguamish Athletic Club, Thornberry Auto, Jon & Bev Hatfield with RE/MAX Signature Real Estate, Gaylord Security and Granroth Insurance Agency — all proceeds from this race go to Housing Hope,” Hatfield said. Trophies will be awarded to the overall winners in men’s 5K, women’s 5K, women’s 10K and men’s 10K with first, second and third place ribbons awarded to the top three finishers in each category. Entry fee is $5. Registration starts at 7:45 a.m. ARC’s final run of the year is the Marines Toys for Tots Run on Dec. 13.
