(Nelson, NY) Entry forms are now available to participate in the second annual Mad Cow 5K Race, a Route 20 road challenge event. Proceeds from this event support Madison County Community Action Partnership.
Presented by In Your Pace Running Club, the race will be held on Saturday Aug. 7 at 9 a.m. and begins and ends at the Nelson town offices on Nelson Road.
Just a little more than three miles long, the first two miles of the race are flat with “gentle” hills. The last mile is downhill and the finish is flat and fast. Participants may also walk this race.
Awards will be presented to the top male and female finishers overall in age divisions. A ceremony will follow after the last entrant has finished.
Last year 175 people entered the race.
Pre-registration fees are $20 for adults and $15 for students 17 and younger and must be received by July 25. All pre-registrants will receive a race day shirt.
Participants can sign up on race day for $25 between 7:30 and 8:30 a.m.
The Mad Cow 5K Race is the running club’s ode to the rich history of the Holstein cow and Madison County.
