As a longtime member of the YMCA and given its great benefit to our community, I decided to share this special event with you. YMCA Alexandria’s annual 5K is this Saturday (October 12) at 8 am and it has a new course and a new theme – the 5K Pirate Treasure Your Health Race! Post-race activities include music, face painting, prizes and more. For the tiniest pirates (ages 2-10), sign up the day of the race for a 50-yard dash with booty for all at the end. Costumes are encouraged and the best one will win a prize. Don’t miss this fun-filled event or you may be forced to walk the plank! Register NOW at www.prraces.com
P.S. When online registration closes, you will still be able to register in person Friday (October 11) between 4 and 8 pm at the YMCA or on the morning of the race before 7:30 am.
