HUNTINGTON - Registration is now open for Herd Glow 5K, Marshall University’s 2nd Rainbow Run, at 9 p.m. on Friday, June 21, in Huntington.

The event features a nighttime 5K through Marshall’s Huntington campus, and it begins and ends at the Memorial Fountain.

Registration prior to June 7 is $25 and guarantees a T-shirt. Registration after the early deadline is $30 and a T-shirt cannot be guaranteed.

The scholarship will be endowed when $15,000 is raised.
