2023 Hatteras Island Cancer Foundation 5K Race set for October 7


The Hatteras Island Cancer Foundation’s (HICF) 20th Annual 2023 5K Race is set for October 7.  It will take place on the Saturday of Columbus Day weekend through the neighborhood of Kinnakeet Shores on the soundside in Avon.

It will be a Color Blast Run again this year. Be prepared to walk, run, stroll, or ride your bike through color stations where you will be “blasted” with color powder. Race t-shirts or your choice of white clothing is suggested for the full “blast” effect!

The cost of this event is $45 in advance and $50 on the day of the race. The price includes this year’s HICF 5K T-shirt and awards.

Registration is at 8 am. Bikes start at 8:45 and walkers and runners start at 9 a.m. Participants can sign up for the October 7 event at https://runsignup.com/race/?raceId=36599. For more information on the HICF or to make a donation, please visit www.hicf.org.
