Ken and Debbie Fritsche with Greenwood Athletic Club presented Race Director Randy Davis a check for $500 for their sponsorship of this year’s Yule Run 5K taking place on December 14.
Debbie, a runner herself, has run the 5K several times and is excited to help sponsor the race. The Fritsche’s bought Greenwood Athletic Club in 2012 and have made many improvements to the gym. Sponsoring the race is another way they feel they can help promote athletic activities and healthy lifestyles in the area.
This year’s Yule Run will be held on December 14 at 9 a.m. with check-in beginning at 8 a.m. at the Means Wilkinson Community Room at Farmers Bank. Registration is $20 on or before December 12 and $30 thereafter. A long sleeve t-shirts will be given to the first 150 registrants.
Cash prizes will be given to the race participant with the most Christmas themed attire. "The course is a challenging course," Director Davis states. "Now we want to make it a unique, enjoyable run. Hopefully, a lot of people will dress in some kind of Christmas attire for spectators to see."
