FULTON, NY – The Fulton YMCA is happy to announce its partnership with Red Baron Pizza for the Loop Around the Lake Kid’s Fun!
The fun run is geared for children ages 4-12 and will offer the following distances; for 5 and under 70 yards, 6-7 year olds the ¼ mile, 8-9 year olds ½ mile and 10-12 year olds the 1 mile distances.
Snoopy, from MetLife, will be on hand to help with the start of each event. When the kids are done with their individual race they will be able to participate in inflatable fun, face painting, finger printing and some great refreshments! Each child will get a nicely designed T-shirt, a goody bag and a finisher ribbon for being a participant.
The Fulton YMCA looks forward to working with Red Baron Pizza and providing a fun family event for the Fulton Community.
For adults, the annual “Loop Around” the Lake” registration is open to the public. This race is comprised of a 15 kilometer run, a 5 kilometer run, and a 5 kilometer walk.
The three events cater to every one of all levels of physical fitness. We offer three different categories to help encourage everyone to participate. Our goal is to include people who have never run a road race before and have always wanted too.
The objective is to defeat the stigma that road races are just for competitive runners.
The Kids’ Fun Run begins at 8 a.m. followed by the Loop’s 15K/5K Run and 5K Walk, start at 8:30 a.m.
Both events take place at the Fulton War Memorial on August 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.
Race Applications are available at the Fulton YMCA or by logging onto ezracereg.com or log 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.
