The Newcastle 5K Run/Walk will be back at Lake Boren Park at 9 a.m. on September 9 for the fourth year of the event with a 3.1 mile route through Newcastle's trails and byways.
All proceeds from the event go to scholarships to benefit local students in concert with Newcastle Running Club. Three students, one from Liberty, Hazen and Interlake high schools, received $1,400 awards last year as the event's recipients.
Finalists for the scholarships are selected on GPA, college admission test scores, financial need, a personal essay and community/school involvement. The scholarships are open to high school seniors in Newcastle or who attend Hazen or Liberty high schools.
All ages are welcome to participate in the run/walk and dogs are also allowed. There will be a kid's race immediately following the event. All participants will receive an event t-shirt and prizes will also be available.
