Nick Clare run is Saturday in Hastings

In 2002, the Hastings community joined together to pay tribute to the life of Nick Clare. Clare, a Hastings native, was a senior at Montana State University in Bozeman when he lost his life in a car accident. Following his death, his family and friends organized the first annual Nick Clare Memorial Run. That initial run and those following it have been very successful in helping the Hastings community and high school.

This Saturday, May 4, is the 12th annual Nick Clare Memorial Run, and proceeds from the event will go to support programs at the Hastings Area YMCA and the Nick Clare Scholarship.

The run starts and finishes at the Hastings YMCA, located at the corner of First and Pleasant streets. The 5K walk/run and the 10K run/walk will start at 8:30 a.m., with registration beginning at 7 a.m. The 2K walk starts at 10 a.m. with registration beginning at 9 a.m.

There will be drawings for door prizes after the walk/runs. For course maps, past results, information about the run and registration, go to nickclare.com. Registration forms are also available at the Hastings Pleasant Hill Library and the YMCA.
