5K Scrub Run/Walk

August 24, 2019 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am

scrub-run, Scrub RunJoin us for a fun family event along beautiful Lake Minnewaska. Dogs and strollers are welcome! The race will not be timed again this year so that 1) the price is low and 2) more funds can go to a local cause.

Medals will be awarded to the overall winners (male and female). A First Place medal will also be awarded to the male and female in various age categories.

All pre-registered participants will receive their choice of an incredibly soft District Made t-shirt or racerback tank top. {Thank you to Screenprints Plus for supporting the Scrub Run and co-sponsoring the upgraded shirt and tank top option!}

Whatever your health and fitness goals are, you can achieve them. Inspired by Dr. Mark Johnson, everyone at Glacial Ridge Health System wishes you well and encourages you to get active and stay active.

There are various programs and calendars you can follow to help you train for a 5K.

5K, 10K, half marathon Training Plan

fa6da82774ca2ca32426eb2827e5a0d9Your first steps include: 1) Own a very good pair of running shoes. 2) Stay hydrated. Drink at least 8 glasses of water every day, or more if it’s hot outside or you’re exerting yourself.

Other good ideas: 1) Run with a buddy, even if you don’t run at the same pace. You’ll keep each other accountable. 2) Wear clothes that make you feel good. 3) Don’t forget to warm-up before the run and stretch your muscles after the run.
