Treasure Your Health at our annual 5K race!
Saturday, October 11, 2014 at 8am
Race starts and finishes at YMCA Alexandria

Arrrgh, Matey! It's fall, which means it's time for our annual 5K - the Pirate Treasure Your Health Race! Have an adventure running or walking the fast and flat 3.12 mile route. Make it back to the YMCA as fast as you can because the bounty will be plentiful and awards will be given. Post-race activities include music, face painting and more. For our tiniest pirates (ages 2-10), sign up the day of the race for a 50 yard dash with booty for all at the end. Did we mention free eye patches? Pirate costumes are encouraged and the best one will win a prize. Don't miss this fun-filled event or you may have to walk the plank!
