Plans under way for Weston 5K run/walk

The Weston 5K Run and Wellness Walk will again provide a race for young runners April 12 in downtown Weston.

The regular Walk/Run will begin at 10 a.m. There will be a run for children 10 years old and younger at 11 a.m. Racers also are invited to bring their dogs.

Stonewall Jackson Memorial Hospital, the city of Weston and Saint Patrick Church and School cooperate for the event.

Prizes in both the female and male contests are $150 for first place, $75 for second place and $25 for third place. This year there are nine age categories which include: younger than 11; 11-15; 16-19; 20-29; 30-39; 40-49; 50-59; 60-69; and 70 and older.

Both registration forms can be obtained at www.stonewallhospital.com. In the menu on the left side, click on either Weston 5K Run/Walk or Weston Wee Run. Preregistration must be in by April 4 to receive a long-sleeve race shirt.
