The town will be hosting the second annual 5K run/walk scheduled on Sunday, May 5th.  The theme celebrates our annual summer visitors, the infamous Greenhead flies.  Runners will start at 9:00 at the Pavilion and continue north along Bay Avenue, make the turn at Beach Plum and return to the Pavilion.  There will be prizes, games, and a band at the finish line, as well as goodies provided by a sponsor, Dogfish Head Brewing Company.  Proceeds will go to the Slaughter Beach Memorial Fire Company.   Registation for the race/walk will open soon and more information will be posted.  Trisports Charitable Events will be putting on the event again.
