Sartomer Arkema 5K

Over 100 participants entered the Sartomer Arkema 5K and fun run in 2018. 

The 2019 Chatham Sartomer Arkema 5K and one mile fun run is set to be held Saturday, Sept. 14. 

In 2018 the 5K run, walk, group run, and fun run had over 100 participants despite being delayed one week due to Hurricane Florence. 

Organizer Bill Wiebking said the event has received over $8,500 in pledges through Monday, Sept. 9 and has 20 sponsors. 

Proceeds from the event will go to support local community agencies, with a third going to the Chatham Rescue Squad and another third to the Chatham Volunteer Fire Department. 

Saturday’s prerace registration starts at 7:30 a.m. and ends at 8:45. 

The fun run begins at 9, and the 5k run/walk and team races begin at 9:30 on Center Street in Chatham.  

There is a $25 registration fee the day of the race. 

“I would like to welcome Haymes Brothers and SOVAH Health, as two new race champion donors. Also sponsoring the race is  Hargrave Military Academy; eContact Systems; and Harris, Harvey, Neal & Co.,” Wiebking said.
