Runners taking County Line State of Mind 10K 5K on June 19
MADISON – The County Line State Of Mind 10K 5K and Base Fun Run will leave the starting line on James Clemens High School campus, proceed south on County Line Road and return to campus for the finish.
The City of Madison’s sponsorship, powered by JC Jets Baseball, will present the inaugural running of County Line State of Mind on June 19. Participants can receive information envelopes at the Christina Smith – State Farm Packet Pickup on June 18 from 5 to 8 p.m. at the JetsPlex.
The 10K will start at 7 a.m., followed by the 5K at 7:15 a.m. at the JetsPlex baseball field. The race route will be closed to all traffic between 7 and 9 a.m., with streets progressively opening by following the last runner. At 9 a.m., traffic will return to all route streets.
After the Fun Run, runners will receive their prizes at the JC FleetFeet Awards Ceremony in the JetsPlex. Officials will award individuals in each age group, along with the Top Male and Top Female entrants.
Runners cannot register on race day. In addition, limited entries may be available at packet pickup.
Currently, more than 200 runners have registered. “We will have great viewing spots along the route for people to cheer on runners,” spokesperson Kristen Kulavich said.
