Runners wanted for fifth annual MS Run


The National Multiple Sclerosis Society is looking for runners for the Rhode Island chapter’s fifth annual Run MS: 5K Rhode Race. The run will be held the morning of Sunday, April 7, along a certified 3.1-mile course in Bristol’s Colt State Park.

Registration is $25 in advance and $30 on the day of the run. Start time for the flat, scenic course is at 10 a.m., and check-in starts at 8:30 a.m. For details on Run MS: 5K Rhode Race or to register, visit and click on the Run MS: 5K Rhode Race link or call 738-8383, option 2.

The MS 5K is organized and operated by the R.I. Chapter of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society.

The 5K is held in conjunction with Walk MS on the same day and the money raised will benefit Rhode Islanders with multiple sclerosis and fund research to find new MS treatments and a cure.
