The Weston 5K Run and Wellness Walk will again provide a race for young runners.
The annual event will be held April 21 in downtown Weston. The regular Walk/Run will be held at 10 a.m. There will be a run for children 10 years old and younger at 11 a.m. Young participants will run from East Second Street to First Street, along Court Avenue.
Stonewall Jackson Memorial Hospital, the city of Weston and Saint Patrick Church and School cooperate for the event. This year, the race will provide long-sleeve shirts instead of T-shirts.
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 10 age categories, which include under 11; 11-15; 16-20; 21-25; 26-35; 36-45; 46-55; 56-65; 66-75; and 76 and above.
