Runners of all ages will be seen sprinting through town this weekend, as the 5k Burgher Dash, a footrace to benefit the Warrensburg playground fund, is held Saturday. The race will start at 9:30 a.m at the Warrensburg Elementary School. Principal Amy Langworthy reported this week that the goal is to have 100 participants. As of May 6, there were 50 registered, she said.
"We really want to encourage as many community people to participate in this healthy and fun event," Langworthy said.
Students can participate for a $10 donation toward the playground fund. The local ambulance squad and county police officers will be assisting with safety. A children's Fox Run at 11 a.m. follows the main race.
To register, contact Anne Downes at 623-9747 or email@example.com or Chris Brown at 623-3055 or firstname.lastname@example.org. The registration fee is $25.
