South Decatur Junior Senior High School Music Parents will be hosting a 5K run and chili cook off Oct. 27.
The Fall Fun Run is intended to be an annual event in the future, according to race director Robyn Davis.
Proceeds will be used to offset costs for the band and choir trip to Florida and Disney Land. Registration will begin at 8 a.m., and the race will begin at 9 a.m.
Open to anyone who wishes to enter, the 5K run is $25, or $20 if a participant does not want a t-shirt. All participants will receive a t-shirt and goody bag. The bags will contain tourist information, business cards, gift cards and coupons. The winner of the run will be awarded a trophy, and the entry fee will be returned. The race will be timed by Indiana Timing and posted on indianatiming.com by 5 p.m. the day of the race. Entry forms can be found at facebook.com/pages/South-Decatur-High, or interested people can sign up at signmeup.com/86159.
For people who pack their participating pets, there will be the Doggy Dash. The first dog that passes the finish line will receive a medal and a doggy bag.
The Chili Cook-Off judging will begin at 10:30 a.m. There is no registration required, but Davis would like to be alerted if someone intends to enter the contest. “There will be a spectacular trophy for the winner,” said Davis. There will be three judges.
Following the judging, lunch will be served at 11 a.m. Lunch is $5 at the door and includes chili, a peanut butter sandwich, crackers, dessert and a drink.
