Music filled the night at annual 5K run


Saturday evening at Amelia Carriel Junior High School was a little busier than most.

Tiki torches and music filled the night as over a hundred runners came out for the Music of the Night 5K presented by Lifelong Music in O’Fallon Schools.

Members of the District 90 band program as well as OTHS Marching Panthers volunteered to perform at the start-finish line as well as in various locations along the race route.

Runners started in front of Carriel Junior High before turning south down Seven Hills Road. They then turned west down Wesley before turning north onto Shadow Ridge, turning around when they got to St. Nicholas Church. The route then returned to Carriel, where the race ended.
