The Fulton YMCA announced its partnership with Red Baron Pizza for the Loop Around the Lake Kid’s Fun event.
The fun run is geared for children ages 4-12 and will offer the following distances: for 5 and under, 70 yards; 6-7 year olds, 1/4 mile; 8-9 year olds, 1/2 mile; and 10-12 year olds, one mile.
Snoopy from MetLife will be on hand to help with the start of each event. When the kids are done with their individual races, they will be able to participate in inflatable fun, face painting, finger printing and refreshments.
Each child will get a T-shirt, a goody bag and a finisher ribbon for being a participant.
For adults, the annual “Loop Around the Lake” registration is open to the public. This race is comprised of a 15 kilometer run, a 5 kilometer run, and a 5 kilometer walk.
The three events cater to every one of all levels of physical fitness.
“We offer three different categories to help encourage everyone to participate,” a YMCA spokesperson said. “Our goal is to include people who have never run a road race before and have always wanted too.”
The Kids’ Fun Run begins at 8 a.m. The Loop’s 15K/5K Run and 5K Walk will start at 8:30 a.m.
Both events take place at the Fulton War Memorial Saturday, Aug. 25.
