It’s time for our annual Running the Foothills 5K event! We invite all to join us this Saturday, Sept. 28 at Two Strike Park in La Crescenta. Runners, joggers, walkers, families, friends, and pets: this event is for all to enjoy!

Come rain or shine we will be at the park at 7 a.m. for prepaid check-in and to enter those last minute participants. If you have not yet entered and want to get ahead of the race, you can still register online atwww.crescentavalleychamber.org/5k or visit our chamber office at 3131 Foothill Blvd. in La Crescenta. The fee is $20 for pre-entry and $25 on Saturday. Each person will receive a race T-shirt with each paid entry fee. There will also be a free Kids Fun Run for all our special little participants. If your little one would like a T-shirt, it can be purchased for just $10.

We will be honoring first, second and third place male and female winners in each of our seven age groups. In addition, this year we have broken down our age span for each category in order to honor more winners. So all of you competitive spirits come out and show us what you got! Those who are just looking for some fun in the sun – please join us as it’s going to be a wonderful time.

Also, I want to remind everyone that we will be donating $5 of each entry to a local school or youth organization of the paying participants choice. If you are looking to raise some extra money for your child’s school, or maybe your little one’s youth sports team, this will be a great opportunity to bring in the funds. I know there are some principals out there who have challenged other schools to see who can raise the most, so be sure to check in with your school office and find out how you can help win the challenge. I am telling you it’s as easy as can be, so sign up for the 5K and just tell us where to send the check!

We look forward to seeing you at the race; happy running!
