A 5k benefiting Washington athletics is being held this weekend. The Jingle Bell 5k starts at 9 tomorrow morning with the 5k that will start on the square then follow a path through Sunset Park. There will also be a 1 mile fun run for the kids in Central Park. Registration starts at 8 at Bodywrx Fitness.
According to Steve Roth who organized the race, funds raised through registrations go to the Washington Track Club. The Club will then use the money to buy material for a new storage shed on Case Field, which they’ll be putting up December 1st
He says in the past the race has been held on Fridays, but due to a few big college football games, they decided to hold it on Saturday this year instead. He adds that, judging by the response from the community, it’s a good thing.
