Registration is now open for the second annual Colton's Main Street Run to be held on October 22nd at 9am. The Run is held in memory of Colton Sherrill, son of Trace and Dena Sherrill. The 10-year old athlete and Durant Main Street volunteer passed away three years ago while playing basketball from an unknown heart defect.
