Running on the Ridge set for June 5

Chelsey Saffell, of Jonesboro, trains for the upcoming Running on the Ridge 5k.

The “Running on the Ridge 5K” will be coming to Paragould on Saturday, June 5.

The 5K presents open competition for fitness enthusiasts as well as an opportunity for runners and walkers to enjoy downtown Paragould.

The race will begin and end at the Greene County Fairgrounds while making a large loop through the historic downtown area. The first-time event is being held in conjunction with the 6th Annual Rodeo on the Ridge and will have western elements to go along with the proceedings.

Every runner/walker who enters before May 22 will receive a completion medal, official race T-shirt, and one ticket for the Rodeo on the Ridge Saturday night performance. Entries are just $30.
