FAIRMONT — Marion County Habitat for Humanity will be holding the second annual Racing the Roof 5K run/walk on Friday.

The race is set to start at 7 p.m. with registration beginning at 5:30 p.m. The fee for race-day registration is $30, which includes T-shirts that will be given out on a first-come, first-serve basis.

The course will start and end at East-West Stadium and will utilize portions of Virginia Avenue and Fairmont Avenue throughout the race.

Melanie Thompson, a Habitat for Humanity board member, said the proceeds from the race will be put toward purchasing supplies that will enable the organization to carry out its mission of building homes for eligible families.
