5K Fun for the Whole Family

In August, CMH hosted a 5K run/walk in Bolivar. We saw a lot of families join in the fun. The Buffington Family had a great time along with all of our other participants.

Family fun runs are on the rise. Several races have shorter runs for younger kids and often give medals or ribbons to all finishers. Kidsrunning.com is a great site for articles and tips on getting your kids running.

You can participate in a 5K even if you've never run! It's common for 5K runs to be associated with local fund raising efforts. You'll find that a lot of people are walking or alternating walking and running. If you want to run the whole way, consider starting a running program like Couch to 5K.
