The Tar River Running Co. has teamed up with Freedom Credit Union to sponsor The Belmont 5 race.
The Belmont 5 is a 5-mile foot race on the grounds of the Belmont Lake Golf Club. The race begins at 8 a.m. Sept. 7 on the private Belmont Lake entrance road beside the main fountains.
Organizers said they expect the race to draw runners from all across Eastern North Carolina to participate.
“We are thrilled to launch The Belmont 5. This race encourages runners and walkers of all ability to experience a truly unique race course,” said Michael Forrester, Owner of Tar River Running Co. “The race will help to raise money to benefit Tar River District Scouting, so runners and volunteers will also have a positive impact on the Rocky Mount community.”
Freedom Credit Union is committed to the Rocky Mount community and is proud to present The Belmont 5 at Belmont Lake Golf Club, said Freedom Credit Union CEO Jeff Jones.
“Athletics provide a wonderful opportunity for individuals and families to come together in support of their community,” Jones said. “The Tar River Running Co. provides superior race events that participants look forward to each year. We look forward to participating and cheering on the runners at The Belmont 5.”
