Hootin an Hollarin Hillbilly 5k race is Saturday morning


Pre-registration is $20. Registration the day of the event is $25. All participants receive a commemorative T-shirt with this year's fun logo.

This year's overall champion trophies for top male and female finishers are very much in the Hootin an Hollarin spirit. The wooden outhouses were design and crafted by Todd Friese at the Bargain Bin, located just off the square in Gainesville. Sign up forms for this year's 5k race can be picked up at the Shelter office or the Ozark County Times office.

Runners and walkers are invited to participate in Ozark County’s oldest 5k, set for 9 a.m. Saturday, Sept. 22. The race is a pet-friendly event, according to organizers. 

Participants can register between 8 and 9 a.m. next to Gainesville City Hall, or they can pre-register by mail. Pick up a registration form at Shelter Insurance, which is sponsoring the event, or the Ozark County Times office. Mail the completed form to Doug Hawkins, Shelter Insurance, P.O. Box 115, Gainesville. 

Pre-registration is $20. Registration the day of the event is $25. All participants receive a commemorative T-shirt. 

This year, all proceeds from the race go to the Ozark County Health Department’s program that provides free school supplies for Ozark County students who need them.
