  • The Richfield Springs Community Center will conduct its 11th annual 10K/5K Run and Walk on Saturday, April 27.
    The open 10K will take place on a hilly course with its challenge at the start.
    The 5K will be an “out and back” on rolling hills.
    The two-mile walk will start on Lake Street in Richfield Springs and proceed “out and back” on Cemetery and Butternut roads.
    The children’s “Little Loop” is approximately a half-mile in total (out and back), starting and ending at the start and finish line with ribbons given to all participants.
    The run and walk will start at the Richfield Springs VFW Hall on Lake Street. Parking will be available behind the VFW.
    Registration will take place from 8 to 9:45 a.m. on race day. The “Little Loop” will begin at 9:45 a.m., the 10K at 10 a.m., the 5K at 10:05 a.m. and the walk at 10:10 a.m.
    Pre-registration on or before April 20 for both runs and the two-mile walk is $18 for adults and $13 for students (18 years of age and younger). Day of race registration for both runs and the two-mile walk is $21 for adults and $16 for students.
     “Little Loop” registration is $1 during the pre-registration and day of race.
    Pre-registration is available online at www.getentered.com.
    Proceeds will benefit the Richfield Springs Community Center youth programs.
    Richfield Springs Community Center board member and race fundraiser chairman Bill Kosina said the 5K and 10K run and walk is one of the councils’ fundraiser events, which helps to sustain the Zone Community Center.
    “The fundraiser benefits our youth programs, as well as our Zone Community Center facility since we work with several local nonprofits and collaborate as much as we can and allow them use of our building at no charge. Throughout the year, we have anywhere from eight to 10 different groups using the facility with heating, electricity and running water, so the fundraiser allows us to keep our doors open to the community,” Kosina said.
    Door prizes and awards include T-shirts to the first 75 entrants of the 10K, 5K and two-mile walk, trophies for the overall male and female winners for the 10K and the 5K and first to third place medals for the 10K and 5K for age groups up to 80 to 89.
    There will be a 50/50 drawing and refreshments for participants.
    The Richfield Springs Common Council Run is part of the Route 20 Series. For more information, go to www.nyroute20.com.
