Register now for the Newcastle 5K Run/Walk
September 3, 2013
Running enthusiasts can quench their thirst for a scenic jog, and support local students at the same time, with the 2013 Newcastle 5K Run/Walk for Education.
The 3.1-mile course snakes through a mix of trails and paved roads through Newcastle parks and byways.
The 5K begins at 9 a.m. Sept. 8 at Newcastle’s Lake Boren Park, 13058 S.E. 84th Way. For those who want to participate with strollers, or leashed dogs, there will be a staggered start at 9:15 a.m.
Registration for the regular 5K costs $30 per person, or $25 through group-registration. High school students can enter for $20. Runners can participate in the new 1K Kids Dash for $15.
Register online at www.newcastle5k.com. Participants can also register at a Newcastle Days booth Sept. 7, or on the day of the race, but they are not guaranteed a T-shirt.
The Sept. 8 event raises funds for college-bound high school seniors in Newcastle, including Liberty High School students.
The 2013 race is made possible by support from the YMCA, Imelda Dulcich PR, Michelle Woo — Windermere, HomeStreet Bank, Conner Homes and B&E Meats.
