'Fun run' fun this Saturday in Sunnyside

Sunnyside High School's track and field team will host a 5K fun run, as well as a shorter one-mile race for youngsters 13 & under, this coming Saturday, April 7.

SHS Track Coach Darren Mezger said a non-competitive 5K walk will also be staged Saturday morning for those not accustomed to running great distances.

Sign-ups for the 5K fun run will be accepted from 8 to 9 a.m. Saturday morning at the Sunnyside High School tennis courts. The $20 registration fee entitles each runner to receive an SHS Grizzly t-shirt. There will also be trophies awarded to the top finishers in the 5K fun run, which will start at 9 a.m.

The non-competitive 5K walk will get underway at 9:45 a.m. That sign-up fee is also set at $20.

For youngsters 13 & under, the one-mile race at the Sunnyside High School track begins at 10:30 a.m. The registration fee for that shorter race is $5.

All monies generated at Saturday's fundraiser will be used to benefit the SHS track and field team.
