---- — CLINTON — A new contest will focus on groups cheering on runners during the annual Clinton Half Marathon.

To enter the contest, groups featuring at least two people should take a photo of themselves cheering on runners during the race on Sept. 8, and then post it on the Clinton Half Marathon Facebook site, www.facebook.com/clintonhalfmarathon.

The groups must be cheering on runners on the race day and the race route to qualify.

The photo that gets the most “likes” by noon Wednesday, Sept. 11, will win $100 in River City Gold.

“The winner could be a school group, a charity, or just a fun group of friends,” Clinton Half Marathon committee member Lori Freudenberg said. “We hope people will get creative.”

The winner will be announced on the Clinton Half Marathon Facebook page on Thursday, Sept. 12.

The race will be held at 7:30 a.m. Sunday, Sept. 8, at Ashford University Field.

The event offers the choice of a half marathon, 10K, or 5K run/walk.  

Proceeds from the Clinton Half Marathon will be donated to help support the YWCA.

Registration is available on the Clinton Half Marathon website at www.clintonhalfmarathon.com.
