CARES for Kids duathlon 5K run/walk

From staff reports

This year Western Pennsylvania CARES for Kids and the Brookville YMCA invite you to participate in their 10th Annual Duathlon, 5K and Community Fun Run/Walk from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday, July 21. The race is held each year in the beautiful Cook Forest State Park, Shelter 2 on Forest Road.

This race is unique in that it draws people of all ages and competitive levels because it benefits such a great cause helping victims of child abuse.

Racers will have the opportunity to run and walk in some of the area’s oldest forest canopies and bike alongside the picturesque Clarion River.

Registration starts at 8 a.m., duathlon starts at 9 a.m. and the 5K race will begin at 10 a.m.

Registration forms and waivers can be found at under our “events” tab or at the Brookville YMCA.

The first 50 participants to register will be entered into a drawing for a $100 gift card.

Participants are encouraged to raise donations for Western Pennsylvania CARES for Kids, Inc. and bring them along on race day.

Each participant bringing $75 or more in donations will be eligible to pick from over $2,500 in prizes.

Lunch will be provided to all participants and spectators.
