Human Race set for June 11

Written by 

The Human Race 5K Road Race/Walk is scheduled for 8 a.m. on June 11 at the Waynesville Middle School. The annual race is sponsored by the Haywood Jackson Volunteer Center.

Proceeds from the event will be used to help the center continue to connect volunteers and help educate seniors on Medicare. The Human Race was started in 2002 as a major source of financial support. For four years, the race was a hilly course around The Shelton House.

In 2006, the race moved to the Waynesville Middle School and now features a course in Waynesville and Hazelwood. It is a lollipop-shaped loop, the flattest and fastest race in Western North Carolina during the month of June.

The first 130 people to register will receive a T-shirt, and are eligible for category.

This Must Be the Place

  • This must be the place

    art theplaceI did it again. It’s 9 a.m. last Saturday at the starting line of the Cashiers Trail Mix five-mile backwoods race. I knew I should have gotten more sleep the night before, should have at least had something to eat that morning. Shouldn’t have overindulged in the libations of Friday night, nor said the things I now regretted to my girlfriend.
