Woodstock residents invited to hit the pavement for a cause

March 25, 2017 by  

The Dairy Capital Walk and Run will be coming back to Woodstock for its 21st year, and all ages are invited to get together to walk, run or roll with their neighbors in support of the local hospital.

Those who plan on taking part can choose between a 2, 5 or 10-kilometre route, and new for this year, one with hills has been added for runners who are looking for more of a challenge. Even people who will not be participating can watch the races from the Dairy Capital Run Pasture, which will be set up for the spectators with food and other refreshments, as well as information about healthy living choices.

According to the organizers of the day, the goal is for it to be family friendly, build community spirit and help people discover new ways of promoting their good health. Each participant will be given a specially designed finisher’s medal and T-shirt to thank them for their support. A printer’s graphic design team can be called upon to create items such as these.

The Dairy Capital Walk and Run has been scheduled for May 28, in Woodstock’s Southside Park. An early bird registration fee of $35 will be in effect until April 30, and after that, it will increase to $40.. Anyone who would like to register or find out more can do so by visiting the event’s website.
