5K, 1K races to raise funds for AHS band

Runners and those who just want to help the local high school band program can sign up for Beats Running, a 5K and 1K Fun Run to be held Saturday, May 18 at 8 a.m. at Azle High School.

Presented by Texas Health Harris Methodist Hospital Azle, all proceeds from the benefit run will go to support the Azle High School Marching Green Pride .

Categories include 5K chip-timed, 5K untimed; 1K Fun Run/Walk and Virtual Runner (for those who wish to support and receive the t-shirt without actually participating).

The event will be held on a USATF-certified course.

Participants may opt not to wear the traditional earphone while they run, since members of the Marching Green Pride will be scattered throughout the course performing for the entertainment of runners and spectators alike.
