Gaston County Parks and Recreation will sponsor the 6th Annual Stanley Creek Massacre 5k and 10k race on September 27th, 2014 in downtown Stanley.  This race is called the Stanley Creek Massacre for a good reason!  It provides a great opportunity for runners to enjoy a more hilly/challenging experience than many races provide.  That being said don't let the name scare you off, it's all in good fun.  Come run the rural hills of Gaston County!  Runners will receive T-shirts and awards for the overall male/female in both races and the top 3 male/female finishes in all age groups.  The race will start at 8:00am and we ask that you be checked in my 7:45am. Register online at or call Gaston County Parks and Recreation for a registration form.  For more information, please call 704-922-2163.
