PALM COAST, Fla. - Jan. 20, 2017 - PRLog -- The Rotary Club of Flagler Beach is pleased to once again host the 'Race the Runways for Rotary 5K' on February 4, 2017 at 6:30pm. The race will take place on the tarmac and taxiways at the Flagler Executive Airport, and for the first time, the race will be a nighttime event with the runway lights illuminating as the first runners approach. The Airport is located at 201 Airport Rd, Palm Coast.

"We believe that every 5k finisher should be congratulated on their achievement with an outstanding, quality medal that will truly celebrate the day," said Rotarian and Flagler Executive Airport Director Roy Sieger. "The medal is in the shape of a P-38 Lightning airplane, and we are hoping to encourage people that normally don't run to come out to our race and walk or run for Rotary," he added.

The race will be timed and start at 6:30pm. Registration and sponsorship opportunities are available at flaglerbeachrotary.org. Participants are encouraged to add to the fun by wearing glow-in-the-dark clothing and accessories. Glow jewelry will be in the race goodie bags and the first 200 runners/walkers that sign up will receive a race t-shirt, of course, with part of the shirt that glows in the dark. Headlamps and/or flashlights are encouraged. They have had several teams sign up, including a team from Flagler Schools.

"Our 5K and Cycle Flagler events are our main source of funding for our club," said Rotary Club of Flagler Beach President Cindy Dalecki.  "By signing up to participate in, or sponsor these events, you are working with Rotary to serve humanity in our community and wherever there is need in the world," Cindy added. She also said that the Race has four presenting sponsors this year, more than ever. They are GAI Consultants, Florida Hospital Flagler, Alliance Financial and Florida Health Care Plans. In total, the event has over 20 sponsors of all different levels.
