BIG PINEY — The annual Power in Pink 5K in Big Piney is fast approaching, planned for Saturday, Oct. 7 with a 9 a.m. start time at the Sublette County Fairgrounds. The event serves as a fundraiser for Kickin’ Cancer in Sublette County and has historically raised thousands of dollars for the cause.

Registration is now open and will remain open until 8:45 a.m. on the day of the race. Forms can be picked up in advance at Office Outlet in Pinedale and Big Piney, 307 Mercantile and downloaded from the Power in Pink Facebook page.

Participants are invited to come early to pick up their pink swag and take pictures in the pre-made photo booth at the fairgrounds. Refreshments will be provided.

Racers will compete for first, second and third place prizes in the kids’, women’s and men’s categories. One racer will be crowned as the event’s “best dressed,” so participants are encouraged to get creative with their outfits and costumes.
