The Fulton YMCA’s annual “Loop Around the Lake” is coming up soon and 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 those of all levels of physical fitness.

“We offer three different categories in order to help encourage everyone to participate,” said Kim McPherson of the YMCA. “Our goal is to include people who have never run a road race before. The objective is to defeat the stigma that road races are just for competitive runners.”

The Loop’s 15K/5K Run and 5K Walk start at 8:30 a.m. at the Fulton War Memorial Saturday, Aug. 25. The 15K loops around Lake Neatahwanta, offering some flat roads as well as some challenging hills. The 5K has a more scenic route, winding through local roads and neighborhoods.

The YMCA will also be hosting a Kids’ Fun Run. The fun run will be for children ages 4-12.

Also at the venue will be fun and games. Inflatable fun, face painting, and other entertainment will be provided.

Race Applications are available at the Fulton YMCA, by logging onto ezracereg.com, or by visiting the YMCA’s web site at  www.fultonymca.com.
