Expect traffic delays this weekend in Rising Sun.
The annual Tiger Trot will once again be racing through town.
The event is set for Saturday, April 25 with a 9 a.m. start time. Registration begins at 7:30 at Rising Sun Middle School.
This is the fourth year for the event which funds PBIS (behavior incentives) for the middle school.
Jim Boyd is both the organizer of the event and also a competitor. He said that the goals of the Tiger Trot are to "have fun, raise money, and focus on physical fitness."
So far, about 65 people have signed on for the event. "Most register at the last minute," said Boyd.
The route for the race is Pearl Street to Main Street to Ryan Drive to Colonial Way to Biggs Highway and then back to the middle school on Queen Street, Main Street, and Pearl Street.
There will be overall winners for both males and females. There are also various age categories for children through senior citizens. Top finishers will collect medals. The race will again be professionally timed by Blue Cheetah Sports Timing.
The Tiger Trot 5K will be held rain or shine. The cost to register for the event is $25. There is still time to pre-register on the Rising Sun Middle School website (ccps.org) then go to Rising Sun Middle). You may also just show up to run and register at the event.
