Arrrgh, Matey!! The YMCA Alexandria is sponsoring it's annual 5k with a new course and a new theme - The 5k Pirate Treasure Your Health Race!! Have an adventure running or walking the fast and flat 3.12 mile route but make it back to the YMCA as fast as you can because the bounty will be plentiful and awards will be given. Post-race activities include music, face painting and more. For our tiniest pirates (ages 2-10) sign up the day of the race for a 50 yard dash with booty for all at the end. Did we mention the free eye patches?? Costumes are encouraged and the best one will win a prize. Don't miss this fun-filled event or you may be forced to walk the plank!
