Hudson Burch won the half-mile fun run at last year's Panther 5K at Lakeside High. The event honors the late wife of cross country coach Jerry Meitin.

The sixth annual Lakeside High School Panther 5K, sponsored by the school’s cross country team, will be held Saturday at the school.

The race is a fundraiser for the Lisa Meitin Memorial Scholarship Fund, in memory of the wife of cross county coach Jerry Meitin. She died in January 2012 from ovarian cancer.

Scholarships are awarded to two local cross country runners.

On-site activity begins at 8 a.m. The half-mile walk begins at 8:45 a.m. and the 5K run begins at 9 a.m.

To register, go to www.panther5K.com. The cost is $20, with other sponsorships levels available. Registered racers can pick up their packets from 5 to 7 p.m. Friday at Fleet Feet at 229 Furys Ferry Road or on race day from 8-8:45 a.m.

Race-day registration, which starts at 8 a.m., costs $25.
