GREENHURST - The sixth annual Heritage 5K Trick & Trot Run/Walk, presented by Lake Shore Paving Inc., will take place Saturday, Oct. 26, at the Town of Ellery Park in Greenhurst.
Registration begins at 8:30 a.m., and the race takes place at 10:15 a.m. The cost for the race is $25, and entries will be accepted up to and including race day.
The proceeds from this annual event directly benefit the Heritage Ministries Rehabilitation Department. Funds will be utilized to purchase essential equipment to benefit individuals served by Heritage Green (Greenhurst), Heritage Park (Jamestown), and Heritage Village (Gerry) Rehab & Skilled Nursing. In the event's first five years, close to $20,000 has been raised to benefit the residents of Heritage Ministries.
There will be many award prizes that include first, second and third place - overall male and female, as well as first, second, and third place - in specific age groups. Prizes will be awarded in separate running divisions.
New in 2013, Heritage is also offering a Heritage 1K Kid's Race, sponsored by Lake Shore Builders. Slated to begin at 10 a.m., this is a free event open to area children in three separate age groups: 4 years and under; 5-7 years; and 8-10 years.
Each participant will receive a free T-shirt for participating and the top three finishers in each age group (girl and boy) will receive medals.
The annual Heritage 5K Trick & Trot Run/Walk is not possible with the support of many sponsors. 2013 sponsors include Artone Manufacturing, SmartEdge, Greg Mackie Appliances, FSC Systems, Comport, Chautauqua Striders, RoadID, Pepsi of Jamestown, and ADKO Anything Imprinted.
