CORPUS CHRISTI - Event coordinators are gearing up for the Twilight Run on North Beach Saturday night. The race is the first of its kind in this area and, for that reason, Billy Fairchild decided to put it together. The unique part of the race is the attire. Participants are encouraged to dress crazy, wearing any costume imaginable, and wear glow sticks.
The run will start at 8:30 PM Saturday, August 24th in front of Fajitaville, right on the beach. Runners can choose between a two mile run, two mile walk or a four mile run. Chips will record the runners' times; glow-in-the-dark metals will be awarded to the top three runners in various age categories.
Following the race will be a BBQ with fruit and refreshments. C.C.I.S.D. Police Chief Kirby Warnke will also DJ the event. The funds made through this event will support education in Corpus Christi. Event coordinator, Billy Fairchild says people can register until 8:00 PM the day of the race. For more information, you can email Billy Fairchild at email@example.com or call him at (361) 443-4060.
