FTCC to host Trojan Fit 5K Color Run/Walk


The Fayetteville Technical Community College Foundation's third  annual Trojan Fit 5K Color Run/Walk is scheduled for April 22 on the college campus.

The run promises fun for both casual strollers and serious joggers, who can run or walk across campus and explore camellia trails, fountains, and the Rose Garden. Two routes will be available: a 5K run and a fun walk appropriate for families with strollers.

Proceeds from the Trojan Fit Color Run will benefit the health and fitness scholarship and other scholarships at FTCC, according to a news release.

“Now, more than ever, health and fitness are a priority for many people. The health and fitness industry is growing fast with an increased demand for trainers and industry workers,” said Joseph Davis, a health and fitness instructor at FTCC and Trojan Fit committee member. “Our goal with the health and fitness scholarship is to ease the financial burden of our students and help them to achieve their academic and career goals.” 

T-shirts and race bibs can be picked up April 20 and 21. Check-in on race day will begin at 8 a.m., with an opening ceremony at 8:30. The race will begin at 9 a.m.

After the run, music, food, and health and fitness vendors will be on campus. 

Registration is $35 per person. For more information and to register to run or volunteer, visit https://www.faytechcc.edu/trojan5k or call 910-678-8441.
