Community Art Projects (CAP) is hosting its second annual 5-kilometer Run/Walk and Kids 1-mile Fun Race — “Run for the ART of It” on — Saturday, Sept. 14 on the Ocean City Boardwalk.
Registration will begin at 7 a.m. with the
8 a.m. race taking off from the Ocean City Music Pier and heading south to 23rd
Street and back.
The purpose of the run is to raise awareness for the importance of the arts and funding to help CAP continue to beautify Ocean City through public art. Public art has recently been added to the Boardwalk with the painting of many electric boxes, adding a splash of color to the already beautiful ocean backdrop.
Additional traffic boxes continue to be
painted all over Ocean City by local artists adding to the enjoyment of
residents and visitors. Public art has proven to be an amazing
addition to the streets and public places that we often rush past on our way to
somewhere else. CAP’s commitment is for
public art to be accessible to all.
To register in advance, visit the race page at active.com. Registration for the 5K is $25 and for the 1-mile is $10. Group discounts are available.
