FULTON, NY – The Fulton YMCA has a goal of reaching 75+ kids to participate in this year’s Kids’ fun run.
We are hoping the Fulton and surrounding communities can help us out.
The event offers the following distance: 5 years and under 70 yards, 6-7 years ¼ mile, 8-9 years ½ mile and 10-12 years 1 mile.
Each child will receive a T-shirt, finisher ribbon along with some great refreshments.
There will also be face painting as well as a bounce house for your child to unleash more energy!
The YMCA wants to make this a day of fun for the entire family, but most of all the event is wrapped around taking steps for healthier lifestyles.
We are also encouraging walkers to participate this year! Our goal is to reach 75 walkers as well. So dust off those sneakers and get ready.
The annual “Loop around the Lake” event 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.
We are offering three different categories to help encourage more people to participate. Our major goal is to include people who have never participated in a road race before. 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 a.m. at the Fulton War Memorial August 24.
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.
Local businesses who are helping make this event possible are as follows; Metlife, Pathfinder Bank, Red Baron Pizza, Tim Hortons, Arbys, Eagle Beverage, Frito Lay, Hudson Dairy and Partners in Song, city of Fulton, B & T Sports, RACES Radio Group, City of Fulton Police Department, City of Fulton Traffic Department, Parks and Recreation Department, Oswego County Sheriff’s Department.
