DARLINGTON, SOUTH CAROLINA (March 16, 2017) – For avid runners, the opportunity to run a 5K on the high banks of Darlington Raceway’s historic egg-shaped will be a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
With that said, the track is hosting its Spring Fling 5K on Saturday, April 1, and registrations are still available for the race.
The Spring Fling 5K will begin at approximately 8 a.m. and feature a unique course around the track’s property, beginning and ending on the start-finish line.
“We encourage runners throughout the area and region to sign up and have a truly unique 5K experience around Darlington Raceway,” track President Kerry Tharp said. “The entire event is shaping up to be a fun-filled day at the track for our local community.”
Advance registrations for the Spring Fling 5K are available by visiting www.ItsYourRace.com and searching for keyword ‘Darlington.’ The 5K registration is as follows: $32 from March 16-31, $35 day of the event.
All runners who sign up will receive a $25 rebate voucher towards a frontstretch ticket order to the Sept. 3 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series Bojangles’ Southern 500*.
The Spring Fling 5K is just one part of the first-ever Darlington Spring Fling presented by Genesis Health Care event on Saturday, April 1.
The community day will also feature an Easter egg hunt and free community lunch courtesy of Genesis Health Care.
The Easter egg hunt will be held from 10 a.m. – 11:30 a.m. and open to all kids 12 and under who are members of Darlington Raceway’s Raceway Rascals presented by Future Scholar kids club. Membership cards will need to be shown at the infield check-in point to participate in the hunt. Over 1,000 eggs will be hidden around the track’s infield with special golden eggs offering race tickets and other great prizes.
If your 12 and under child is not a member of the Raceway Rascals presented by Future Scholar kids club, simply sign up the day of the event at the infield registration tent.
The day will conclude with a free community dinner in the Cale Yarborough Garage area courtesy of Genesis Health. The community dinner, which will take place following the egg hunt, is a great opportunity for families to enjoy a day at the track and partake in free food and beverages that will be provided.
The Spring Fling will also have a charitable component to it, as all guests are encouraged to donate non-perishable food items to support The Lord Cares food bank of Darlington.
All guests will need to enter the event through the track’s Gate 39A infield tunnel entrance (will be closed from 7:45 a.m. – 9 a.m. for 5K). The Spring Fling 5K will take place on the start-finish line/pit road. Easter egg hunt registration will take place by the tall scoring pylon in the middle of the infield.
