Otero College will Host the Rattler Run on April 9

 

After a seven-year hiatus, the Rattler Run will once again take place on the Otero College campus. Sponsored by the Otero College Foundation, the proceeds from the event will be utilized to purchase equipment for the Otero College Fitness Center. The deadline to register is Friday, March 18.

Scheduled for Saturday, April 9, the run will have two events, a 5k fun run/walk and a 10k. The 10k will kick off the day at 9 a.m. followed by the 5k that has a start time of 10 a.m. There will be awards for fastest time in the male and female categories for both races as well as a 14 and under winner for the 5k. The awards ceremony will take place at Rattler Field, weather permitting.

The cost to register for the 10k will be $30, while the 5k is priced at $20. Current Otero College students will be able to register for $10 for either race. The price of registration includes a t-shirt that participants can pick up the day before the races, Friday, April 8, in the Otero College Fitness Center between 8 a.m. and 6 p.m.

After both events are completed, the Rattler Field near the Kiva will be prepared for fun and food trucks will be invited for racers and spectators to enjoy! All sponsors will be offered a booth to advertise their businesses and interact with the community. Sponsors will also be featured on the back of t-shirts given to all participants and volunteers.

Dillon Martin, Foundation Director, shared, “We’d really like to encourage all Otero College supporters to come out to this event. Whether you walk or run, grab a bite to eat, or just browse the sponsor booths, we really hope that it’s an event that will draw in the whole community. Everyone is welcome!”
