Erie, PA- The Neighborhood Art House is putting the final pieces in place for the 7th Annual Art & Sole 5k race that takes place this Saturday, June 7, 2014. The planning committee is busy gathering last minute volunteers, packing registration bags and setting up the prizes.

“The committee and staff at the Art House have been organizing the race since last July. Thanks to our generous sponsors we can continue to improve the event each year. Most recently, we added a Team Challenge to the event – allowing businesses, families and school groups to form 5+ person teams and compete against each other.” said Christina Katen, co-chair of the Art & Sole 5k.

The Neighborhood Art House Art & Sole 5k is a unique event in several ways. The race loops through Downtown Erie, with racers sprinting right up State Street looking towards the Lake. They finish running uphill ending back at the Neighborhood Art House. Not many races take place in Downtown and it’s a great way for runners to experience the neighborhoods the Art House serves. In addition to the uncommon race route, the winners take home artwork created by the students at the Neighborhood Art House.
