E-mail Print PDF
The Relay For Life of Hopkins County “Outrun Cancer” races begin Saturday morning, April 25, at Coleman Park. The first group out at 8 a.m. will be those making the one-mile run. The 5K run will follow at 8:30 a.m., and the 10k is scheduled later at 9 a.m.
Although those who want to participate can still sign up the morning of the event, Outrun Cancer race organizers encourage all who can to register before hand to speed things up. Entry fee is $20 per person or $60 per team of four. The first 50 who register receive a T-shirt.
Registration forms are available at Fieldhouse Sports, Sulphur Springs Fitness Center, or may be obtained from Dial Moffatt at 903-439-2016 or e-mail at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .
The top three finishers in each race classification in the 5K and 10K will receive awards.  Ribbons will be awarded to all finishers in the mile. Four-person teams can also be entered in the 5K and 10K, and the winners will receive a team trophy.
Race classifications are: grades 1-3, 4-6, 7-8, 9-10, 11-12; and age classifications are 19-29, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, and masters division for 60 and above.
All proceeds will go to the Relay For Life of Hopkins County to benefit the American Cancer Society. This year’s RFL will be from 7 p.m. Friday, May 1 through 7 a.m. Saturday, May 2, with a wrap-up service immediately after, all on the Sulphur Springs Middle School Track.
Luminaries honoring cancer survivors and remembering those who have lost the battle may still be purchased for $5 each by calling Mynder Kelly at 903-348-3783, the First United Methodist Church office, the fitting room service desk at Wal-Mart or from any Relay For Life committee member.
The luminaries not only honor those who have and are currently battling cancer, but are also representative of the light of hope  thanks to medical breakthroughs from research funded at least in part by ACS and similar organizations.

The luminary ceremony will be held Friday night, May 1 during Relay For Life.
