The Fall Fitness Run will be held on Saturday morning, November 23 at the Elementary Complex in Baxley. The starting time is 8:30 a.m. for the mile and 9:00 for the 5k. A t-shirt will be given to all participants.
The purpose of the Fall Fitness Run is to encourage and motivate people of all ages to improve their fitness. Walking and jogging are the simplest and most convenient forms of exercise. In addition to increasing energy and relieving a person’s stress level, walking or jogging helps maintain a healthy weight, strengthens bones, and prevents or helps to manage several unhealthy conditions, such as heart disease, stroke, blood pressure problems, arthritis and Type Two diabetes. If you like to walk, jog and/or run or you’ve been planning to start, mark Nov. 23 on your calendar for a morning of exercise and fun.
