EVENTS: Washington Challenge slated for Aug. 6, 2023

Washington Recreation’s Annual Washington Challenge, will be Sunday, August 6. Registration will take place from 7 – 7:50 a.m., and the Fun Run starts at 8 a.m., and the 5K starts right after.

Registration for both races is at the back parking lot of the Gibbs Library, 40 Old Union Rd., in Washington.

The 5K will be out and back on the Bill Luce Rd. The Fun Run will start at the monument out to Prescott School and back to the library. It is the Washington Challenge because there are hills on both courses.

Registration fees: $5 for 5K; $1 for Fun Run. T-shirts while they last and door prizes. Medals for 5K winners in all categories: male & female: 0-15 16-19 20-29 30-39, 40-49 50-59 60-64 65 and up. Fun Run Medals for first, second and third places, for both male and female.

They will also be selling our 50/50 raffle tickets as a part of the fund raiser for creating hiking trails in Washington. Tickets are $2 and a single winner will be drawn at the Axiom Broadband Festival, August 12. The winner gets half of the total pot, the Washington Recreational Trails the other half.

So put on your running shoes and come race the Washington Challenge. Walkers are welcome to walk the Fun Run.
