Michelob Ultra and the Coca-Cola Bottling Company are proud to present the 5th annual Flint River Entertainment Complex 5K Race Series hosted at the Veterans Park Amphitheatre in Downtown Albany.
The Race Series will have two registration options. Runners who only want to participate in a single 5K Event should choose their race of choice and pay a $30 registration fee. Single race registration fees will include entry to the race and a race day t-shirt. Runners who would like to participate in the complete race series (all three races) should choose the FREC 5K Race Series – the 3 Races option, and pay a $75 registration fee.
