Join us for the 5th Annual 4 Leaf Clover 5K in Historic Downtown Aiken, SC on Friday, March 13th at 6pm. You will begin your run on Newberry St. and end your run on Newberry St. in historic downtown Aiken. This run will benefit the Aiken Public Safety Police Athletic League. PAL was established 12 years ago with the mission of providing not only athletic opportunities for our youth but to build on life skills and self-esteem for kids who may not have access to those opportunities. PAL started out with football, with girls joining the program as cheerleaders. The organization now focuses as well on co-ed participation in basketball and track and field.
We will have an awards ceremony following the race in the Alley. You won’t want to miss the amazing band 40 Going North. They will play in the Alley from 6:30pm – 9:00pm to help us all celebrate St. Patrick’s Day!!
All runners and walkers are encouraged to participate in our costume contest. Show your St. Patrick’s Day spirit by dressing as a leprechaun or in all green – be creative! Prizes will be given to the top two costumes. Our volunteers on the course will be the judges.
This event will be held rain or shine. Important updates and special discounts for this race will be posted on 2 Girls and a Clock, LLC Race and Timing Services Facebook Page.
