The Fulton YMCA has a goal of reaching 100+ kids’ to participate in this year’s 3rd Annual Kids’ fun run and we are hoping you can help us out! The event offers the following distance: 5 years under 70 Yards, 6-7 years ¼ mile, 8-9 years ½ mile and 10-12 years 1 mile. There will be plenty of fun for the kids’ from face painting, finger printing, bike rodeo fun and they will even be able to release even more energy in a bounce house. The YMCA wants to make this event a fun day for the entire family to enjoy.
We are also encouraging walkers to participate this year! Our goal is to reach 100 participants! Dust off those sneakers and start getting ready!
The annual “Loop Around the Lake” event is coming up soon, and registration is now open to the public. This race is comprised of a 15 kilometer run, a 5 kilometer run, and a 5 kilometer walk. These three races cater to everyone of every level of physical fitness. This race has these three different races to help encourage everyone to participate. Our major goal is to include people who have never run a road race before. We have already recruited 30 new runners! The objective is to defeat the stigma that road races are just for competitive runners.
The Loop’s 15K/5K Run and 5K Walk, start at 8:30 am at the Fulton War Memorial Saturday August 27th. 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. Race Applications are available at the Fulton YMCA or by logging onto our website at www.fultonymca.com. More information about the race and all Fulton YMCA programs can be found on our Fulton YMCA Facebook page.
