The eighth annual St. Michael Fast 5K and Walk will take place Saturday, July 27, at St. Michael Church in Bradford.
There will be door prizes, including tickets to Indianapolis Colts' football games and $25 gift certificates to Pacers & Racers.
Both the race and walk will have an 8 a.m. start time. Same-day registration will begin at 7, closing 15 minutes before the event begins. The cost of race-day registration will be $25. The registration table will be in the parking lot near the church doors and start line. T-shirts will be available for all registrants.
Preregistration ($20; postmarked by July 19) is available online at www.saintmichaelchurch.net under the "Events" page. Print it off, fill out, sign the waiver, enclose payment and mail it in.
Annually, the Fast 5K and Walk benefits the youth of St. Michael Church. Each summer, the youth work with the New Albany Deanery in Faith in Action, where they assist local charities. Additionally, they participate with the Deanery on a mission trip to Campton, Ky., to work in a high poverty area. The funds raised also help cut the expenses for high school-age students who want to attend the One Bread One Cup liturgical leadership conference at St. Meinrad Archabbey and the National Catholic Youth Conference.
Awards are given out to both runners and walkers. Awards for runners will be based on age groups; awards for walkers will go to the top three finishers. In the Fast 5K, awards are given to the first three male and first three female finishers. Also, age group awards will be given out.
Door prizes will be given away, as well, with many businesses in Southern Indiana donating their products and services.
