The annual “Loop Around the Lake” 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 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. In addition to the road races, the YMCA will also be hosting a Kids’ Fun Run. The fun run will be for children ages 4-12. Also at the venue will be fun and games for the whole family. Inflatable fun, face painting, finger printing, bike rodeo 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. More information about the race and all Fulton YMCA programs can be found on our Fulton YMCA Facebook page.
