My First 5K


Next to events that include ice cream, one of this ESM’s favorite activities are 5K’s and fun runs. The My First 5K run is the perfect way to start off 2010! (And more resolution-friendly than ice cream.)

Even if you’ve participated in 5K’s in the past, the My First 5K run will likely be your first in 2010, so the name still applies. Brought to you by the Wellness Task Force, My First 5K takes place on Sunday, January 3rd on the west steps of the Capital (10th Street and Capital Mall.)

The race is open to all ages! Bring the whole family (bundled up, of course) and start 2010 with a healthy and FUN activity. Here is an overview of the mornings’ events:

7-8AM: Race Day Registration & Packet Pickup
8:10AM: Kids’ Winter Fun Run (Ages 5 & under, quarter mile) 
8:20AM: Kids’ Winter Fun Run (Ages 6 to 10, half mile)
8:30AM: 5k Run/Walk
9:45AM: New Year’s Toast & Awards Ceremony
7-11AM: New Year’s Resolution Expo

Registration includes a race t-shirt, ChampionChip timing, refreshments, live music featuring the Wooden Nickel Band, awards, raffle and kids’ entertainment. In addition to a medal, all kids participating in the Kids’ Winter Fun Runs will receive a special #1 foam finger at the conclusion of their runs.

Now, what about the New Years’ Resolution Expo? There will be a My First 5K Resolution Expo Table where you can solidify your wellness goals for 2010. Write down your resolutions and they will even mail it back to you mid-year!

My First 5K is supported by Whole Foods and Capital Road Race Management.

We’ll see you there!
