Registration costs $17 per entry, but increases to $22 after July, 10th 2017.

The race will start on 19th street and end with a lap around the Parkview Intermediate School's track.

"[Its] always a great course. The runners that we've had say it's a fun course. We hope everyone comes out and supports the Boys and Girls Club," said Dr. Jim Sowders, Race Director and long time supporter of the Boys and Girls Club.

The proceeds of the Limestone Classic 5K directly benefit the Boys and Girls Club of Lawrence County.

"[Proceeds] are used for all kinds of things--operation procedures, scholarships for kids and all the programs," said Dr. Sowders.

  • $1,000 - Platinum
