Fulton Family YMCA Still Taking Registrations For ‘Loop Around the Lake’

FULTON – The annual “Loop Around the Lake” is approaching.  This race is comprised of a 15 kilometer run, a 5 kilometer run, and a 5 kilometer walk. These three races cater to every one of all levels of physical fitness.

We offer three different races to help with encouraging everyone to participate. Our goal is to include people who have never run a road race before. The objective is to defeat the stigma that road races are just for competitive runners.

In front from left are: Rick Hahn, Tammy Sheldon, Jeremy Hutchinson and Sophia Graves. In back from left are: Tim Dievendorf, Brian Dumas, Tom Abelgore and Jarrett Marino. All are police officers except Sheldon (spouse of an officer) and Dievendorf (retired in June ’12).

The Loop’s 15K/5K Run and 5K Walk, start at 8:30 a.m. at the Fulton War Memorial Aug. 25.

The 15K loops around Lake Neatahwanta, offering some flat roads as well as some challenging hills. The 5K has a more scenic route, winding through local roads and neighborhoods.

In addition to the road races, the YMCA will also be hosting a Kids’ Fun Run sponsored by Red Baron Pizza. The fun run is geared for children ages 4-12. Also at the venue will be horse rides and air hop fun and other entertainment will be provided.

The YMCA wants to make this event a fun day for the entire family to enjoy.

Race Applications are available at the Fulton YMCA or by logging onto our website at www.fultonymca.com
