PORT ARTHUR — The Port Arthur seawall will be abuzz with activity on Saturday, May 18, when Lamar State College-Port Arthur hosts the 2013 Seahawks on the Seawall 5K Run/Walk.
The event kicks off at 8 a.m. in front of the Carl Parker Multipurpose Center on the campus of LSC-PA, located at 1800 Lakeshore Drive in Port Arthur. Proceeds from the event will benefit scholarships for students at Lamar State-Port Arthur.
“This is an inaugural event and we are already seeing a huge response from our running community,” Athletic Director Scott Street said. “The course for this run is beautiful and will be a lot of fun no matter what level runner you are.”
The event is chip-timed and awards will be presented by gender and age groups. There will also be a silent auction during the event.
Registration is $25 if done before May 1 and $30 afterwards. Registering early guarantees a race t-shirt. Members of the Sea Rim Striders receive a 10 percent discount.
An online form is available for registration at athletics.lamarpa.edu with an opportunity to pay fees electronically at the time of registration. Runners may also pay registration fees by mail or on the day of the run by check or money order.
