MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - This Saturday, Memphis is getting amped up and lacing up their sneakers for the 21st annual Gibson Guitar 5K.

The 5K starts at 7 p.m. downtown at the Gibson Guitar Factory at the corner of 2nd Street and Lt. George W. Lee Avenue.

Two Gibson guitars will also be auctioned off that night at 8:30 p.m. at the Gibson-Memphis rooftop post-race party.

One of the guitars is a 1964 reissue Gibson ES 345, and the other is a Gibson ES 330 Humbucker.

All proceeds from the 5K and auction will benefit St. Patrick Community Outreach, Inc.

WMC's own Joe Birch will serve as emcee for the event.
