Homewood Arts Council

The 'run' for everyone: Arts council brings back popular 0.3K fund run

On Saturday, Sept. 21, downtown Homewood will again be a slacker’s paradise when the Homewood Arts Council will convene its second annual “race” to raise money for the organization. The Homewood 0.3K, “A Fund Run for the Rest of Us!” will give participants two hours, from 4 to 6 p.m., to make the two-block trek from the intersection of Martin Avenue and Hickory Road to the intersection of Martin Avenue and Ridge Road.

Runners tend to dress in shorts and light shirts to help with comfort and performance. Angela Brozowski came to the Homewood Business Association's first 0.3K "run" on Saturday dressed as a unicorn. "It makes me fast and glittery," she said. "I can run on rainbows, soar over everybody." It was that kind of race.
