Paint the Streets

5th annual Paint the Streets 5k & Carlene Hall Memorial Mile July 26

The family and friends of the late Carlene Hall presented the 5th annual “Paint the Streets” 5k & Carlene Hall Memorial Mile Saturday, July 26, 7 a.m. to benefit spinal cord injury services at United Cerebral Palsy (UCP) of Huntsville & Tennessee Valley, Inc.

The race was created by the family and friends of Carlene Hall, an amazing woman who displayed uncommon faith and courage in the face of a debilitating spinal cord injury, to honor Carlene and enhance spinal cord injury services for others in our community.

Directed by the Team Rocket Tri Club, the 5k begins at 7 a.m. at SAIC and continues through Research Park. The CERTIFIED COURSE is FLAT and FAST with no appreciable hills. There are two aid stations that will have water and Gatorade (located at approximately miles 1 and 2). Water and Gatorade will also be available at the Start/Finish area along with post-race food.

The 5k includes a Challenged Athlete Division.

The Carlene Hall Memorial Mile is a walk designed to provide a forum where everyone can participate.

Awards will be given to the overall winners, 1 deep, for Male/Female and Masters Male/Female, as well the top finishers in each age group.

This year a Team Competition category will be offered again. Each participant must register and enter their team name and the name of the team captain so we are sure who is on each team. Teams can be male, female, mixed and military and must consist of 3 to 5 people. The lowest 3 times will be added to determine rank. Prizes will be given to the top three winners in each category.

T-shirts are guaranteed at packet pickup for anyone who has registered prior to July 4. If T-shirts are not available for late registrants, they will be available for pickup at Fleet Feet several weeks after the race.
