MUNSTER | Runners, on your mark, get set...
It's that time of year when the running world embraces the summer elements and celebrates their passion through the streets of Munster, Indiana all in the name of charity.
Come rain or shine, the 25th Annual Munster Rotary Club Run-A-Round 5K (run, walk) and 10K, in conjunction with the Calumet Region Striders, will start with registration at 6:45 a.m. (5K race begins at 7:45, 10K at 8:30 a.m.) on Saturday, June 15 at the Munster High School Football Field, 8808 Columbia Avenue.
"This race is very exciting and for such a wonderful cause," said Bill Bach, Munster Strack and Van Til general manager and Run-A-Round race director. "The Rotary Club does so much for our community and this is one of those fundraisers that have a high impact on what we do and we are proud of our community."
The Entry fee for pre-registration is $20 and $25 after June 7 ($30 to run both the 5K and 10K). A special family of four package is $70 (pre-registration only). A shirt is guaranteed for all pre-registrants, as available race day (dry-fit shirts add $6, no shirt subtract $2).
Many awards will be provided including 1st Overall (male and female), 1st-2nd-3rd all divisions (male and female), walk first overall (male and female) and Master's Division (40+ male and female).
