Whether you are a professional runner who competes in marathons or someone that just enjoys walking in the great outdoors, the first run/walk of the season in Big Spring will be Saturday, Feb. 13, at the Big Spring State Park.
Registration for the event, which is a 5k, is between 8:15 a.m. and 9:45 a.m. The park gates will close at 9:45 a.m. and re-open at 11 a.m.
The race begins at 10 a.m. and awards will be handed out around 11:15 a.m.
Online registration prices are $25 and $45 for couples. Day of race prices are $30 for an individual or $55 for couples.
“This year’s run benefits CASA (court appointed special advocates) of West Texas and the United Way. Come, have a great time on Saturday, Feb. 13 and help CASA and United Way in their mission to improve the lives of children in the foster care system,” said Ron Alton of the Big Spring State Park.
There will be a costume contest with top prizes being $25 gift certificates to KC’s Steakhouse (you must complete the course in costume to qualify).
The male, female, couples and kid winners will receive stuffed animal trophies.
