The 5th annual event, which is on April 25, is a 5-mile run and 2-mile run/walk for all athletes, from serious racers to those who want to go the distance.
A highlight this year is the Team Challenge. “Racers can form a team of four and show their support for an active lifestyle and help lead the way for a healthier community,” said Stern, noting that awards will be given to the teams with the lowest combined team times and best team costumes.
The route takes runners and walkers along the Sturgeon Trail. All proceeds raised benefit ThedaCare Foundation – New London, a non-profit organization that supports ThedaCare Medical Center-New London and the communities it serves. Last year the event raised nearly $20,000.
Registration starts at 8 a.m. at New London Middle School and the race starts at 9:30 a.m.
Awards will be given to the top finishers in each age category.
