(Nelson, NY – Aug. 2012) In Your Pace Running Club will host the fourth annual Mad. Co.w 5K Race, a Route 20 Road Challenge Event, in Nelson Saturday, Aug. 4. The race starts at 9 a.m. at the Nelson Town Offices, one-quarter-mile north of Route 20 on Nelson Road.
Pre-registration must be received by July 25; fees are $15 for those under 17 years and $20 adult. Entry forms and waivers are available at inyourpace.com or capmadco.org. Race day registration is $25 for everyone.
Registration will be held from 7:30 to 8:30 a.m.
The 5K (3.1 mile) run/walk will take participants through the heart of cow country in the Nelson dairy region.
This year, proceeds from the Mad. Co.w run will benefit Community Action Partnership for Madison County, a local non-profit that helps individuals and families in Madison County become and remain self-sufficient, and other local charities.
Last year, the event raised $3,600.
With a lucky runner drawing, raffle drawing and awards to top male and female finishers by age group, the event will be a good time for a good cause.
No dogs or strollers are permitted at the run, which is a USA Track & Field 2011-sanctioned event.
