as well. The cost is $10 for Ferrum students. The general public is encouraged to
sign up early to save money. Early Bird registrants will pay $20 if they sign up
by March 13. The fee is $25 until March 25, and $30 on race day. Participants may
sign up from 7:45 a.m. – 8:45 a.m. the day of the race. All those who pre-register
will receive a t-shirt.
Ferrum College (title) Rol Walters said that the race was an important project for
the Rotaract Club. “Rotaract is the college arm of the local Rotary Club,” explained
Walters. “The Rotary Club’s motto is Service Above Self. Ferrum’s is Not Self But Others, so clearly this is in keeping with the mission of both. Walters said proceeds
from the event will help Rotaract with future projects, and a portion will be donated
to United Way of Franklin County. Walters thanked Member One Credit Union for sponsoring
