McCormick’s Creek State Park Set To Host 5K Run/ Walk Saturday, April 19

The Owen County Family YMCA and the Friends of McCormick’s Creek are hosting a 5K run/walk on Saturday, April 19, beginning at 8:30 a.m. Runners and walkers should gather at the Nature Center for packet pick up and onsite registration at 7:30 a.m. Proceeds from this fun, family event help fund YMCA scholarships and family activities at McCormick’s Creek State Park.

Racers will travel a scenic loop on paved roads through McCormick’s Creek State Park, enjoying spring flowers and the natural beauty of the creek. Rolling hills make the course challenging enough for seasoned runners and walkers while still doable for novice participants.

Gift cards and trophies will be presented to overall male and female finishers in the run and walk division. First and second place medals will be awarded to male and female age group winners in the run division and first place male and female age group winners in the walk division. Post-race festivities will include a prize drawing and refreshments provided by Babbs SuperValu.

For more information, contact YMCA Program Director Laura Gentry at 812-828-9622. Participants may register at the Owen County Family YMCA or online at www.Mag7RaceSeries.com. Entry fee is $20/person by April 4, or $25 after April 4.
