On your mark, get set, cure!
Runners, walkers and good-deed-doers are invited to the Just Cure It event at Blanchard Woods Park on Saturday. Hosted by the Evans Fitness Club, net proceeds of the road race will benefit the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.
The race, a choice of 5K or 10K, starts at 8 a.m. and participants are encouraged to arrive no later than 7:45 a.m.
Despite the distances, Marcus Larry, a coordinator of the race, said everyone is encouraged to register because the race is designed for runners of all kinds.
“Both races are open for anyone with all running levels,” he said. “Whether you want to run, walk or run-walk, just come and have fun for a good cause.”
The event is family-friendly, Larry said, with a Fun Run for children to participate in while mom and dad finish the race.
To register, go to active.com and search “Just Cure It.”
Registration closes at midnight on Thursday. The 5K and 10K fee is $30 and the Fun Run fee is $10.
Blanchard Woods Park is located at 4600 Blanchard Woods Road, Evans.
