Dawn Melton would like to remind everyone about the Fall Fitness Run to be held this Saturday morning, November 19, at the Elementary Complex in Baxley. Although the name indicates “Run,” there will be walkers and runners of all ages and ability levels for the mile and the 5K. A t-shirt will be given to ALL participants.
If you like to walk and/or run or you’ve been planning to start, come to the Fall Fitness Run on Saturday and enjoy a one mile or three mile walk, jog or run with several hundred participants. In order to Pre-Register, entry forms are available to pick up and turn in at all Appling County Schools, the Appling County Board of Education and the Baxley-Appling County Chamber of Commerce. Dawn Melton will pick up entry forms and entry fees at these sites until Pre-Registration ends on Friday. The fee to pre-register is $8.00. The fee for children 14 and under is $5.00. However, participants may register early on Saturday morning from 7:30 – 8:15 a.m. with an additional $2.00 late fee. It is recommended to arrive early to avoid the crowd.
ALL participants need to pick up their number and t-shirt before 8:15 a.m. in order to start the mile promptly at 8:30 a.m. The 5k begins immediately after the mile at approximately 9:00 a.m. Trophies will be awarded to the male and female OVERALL winners and to the top three winners in each AGE GROUP in the mile and 5k. The age groups for the mile begin with four and under and proceed through 60 and over. The 5K age groups range from ten and under through 70 and over.
