Kiwanis members travel to Mount Vernon

A group of local Kiwanians traveled to Mount Vernon on Saturday, April 9, to time the yearly Glow 5K.

This year’s run saw 47 registered male and female participants competing against each other beginning at 7 p.m.

One of those was Swainsboro’s own Beth Lane, who finished 12th.

Swainsboro Kiwanis Club has been professionally timing 5K and 10K runs for more than three years in most cities within 50 miles of Swainsboro. The Kiwanians’ equipment consists of three digital handheld timers, a large digital clock mounted on a tripod, numbered tickets to hand out to the finishers in order, a narrow finish line shoot, a large 7’ male and female finishing poster board, a cheerleader section, a bull horn, and a race director.

If you would like the Swainsboro Kiwanians to time a race, contact Race Timing Chair Tim Goodman at 478-494-4741 or e-mail him at
