It’s Fun, Fast, And Flat: The Oneonta YMCA-Outlaws 5K Fun Run Tonight
Tonight's a great night to get sweaty and race for a great Organization: the Oneonta Family YMCA. Tonight at 5:50pm, is the YMCA/Outlaws 5K Fun Run at Damaschke Field in Neahwa Park in Oneonta. Registration and bib pickup is from 4pm to 5:30pm. The cost is $15 for kids (up to 12 years of age) and $20 for adults and includes entry to the baseball game afterward. Race shirts will be on a first come first served basis while supplies last tonight, for those not pre-registered. The race will kick off promptly at 5:50pm and end at 6:45pm in time for runners to attend the Outlawsgame at 7pm as they take on Geneva. If you need and added incentive to run tonight, there will be prizes awarded for 1st place overall Male & Female and 1st-3rd place medals for all age groups.
After running this race years ago as a first time race participant and new runner, I highly recommend this event for new racers. It's a nice flat 5K race that ends on home plate in the ball park, with many people cheering you on. So grab a buddy or family member and have some fun tonight while helping the Oneonta YMCA raise some much needed funds to continue to provide all their wonderful services for the community.
