9th Annual Colton's Main Street Run set for October

The 9th Annual Colton's Main Street Run will take place on October 20 in Downtown Durant.

The Run (5K, 10K, Fun 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 10 years ago while playing basketball from an unknown heart defect.

The proceeds from this race have been devoted to building a healthier community by funding initiatives such as: AED heart defibrillators and certification training for schools, churches, law enforcement, etc.

This year's proceeds will also install two Bay Handicap ADA Wheelchair Swing Sets at Durant City Parks.
