Race For Charity In The Ninth Annual Katy's Courage 5K On April 13th
Hamptonites it’s time to get out of the house and start jogging! We have no excuse now that the wicked winter temps have started to subside − it’s time to train, burn off some calories, and join the Katy’s Courage 9th annual 5K road race on Saturday, April 13th. Katy’s Courage is a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization honoring Katy Stewart (above), an inspirational 12-year-old girl who died from a rare form of pediatric liver cancer. The organization is dedicated to supporting education, children’s bereavement counseling and pediatric cancer research.
Registration and check-ins will be from 7 to 8:15 a.m. and the race will begin at 8:30 a.m. Pre-registration costs $25 per person, and day-of costs $30 per person. Participants may register online HERE . Runners will start at 21 West Water Street, head north and make a right onto Main Street, make a right onto Glover Street, run through the Redwood section of the course and finish back on Water Street.
