The races will begin and end at the sculpture of Claude Monet on the front garden of the Fine Arts Institute, 27 Edwards.
“It is such a privilege to help organize this event. There are not many runs that take place in downtown Edmond and on streets where fabulous public art is displayed on almost every corner,” said Darin Kent, co-chairman of the event.
“Plus, starting and finishing close to the sculpture of Claude Monet at the Fine Arts Institute will really help showcase our outstanding facility and the great experiences our classes and camps offer.”
A $25 preregistration fee will be charged for the 5k run and $10 for the family fun run for ages 12 and younger.
Children and families can run or walk one mile of the course beginning and ending at the Fine Arts Institute.
Registration can be completed at the Fine Arts Institute, online at www.edmondfinearts.com or www.signmeup.com.
Registration fees the day of the race will be $30 for the 5k and $15 for the family fun run.
Medals will be awarded to the top runners in standard age groups.
T-shirts will be included with preregistration only.
Proceeds from “5k to Monet” will go toward operational costs at the Fine Arts Institute to help keep tuition and fees affordable for all ages and stages in the Edmond community.
Healthy food will be available after the race with one water station at the halfway mark.
Shannon Price is special events coordinator for the Fine Arts Institute in Edmond.
