Celebrate your active dad and enter the Gym Rat Race
DIXFIELD- Before you decide to fill your dad’s belly with a hearty meal on Sunday, why not help one another keep up an active lifestyle and enter the Gym Rat Race at the Wellness Center. Race time is 9 a.m. and registration opens at 7:30 for the 3.1-mile course through local neighborhoods.
What better gift could you give your dad on his day than time spent with his son or daughter, running or walking, or both, and sharing memories that will last forever.
The RSU 10 Wellness Center will be hosting their third annual 5K on Sunday. Located in the school district’s central office building on Nash St., it was opened several years ago with funding from a PEP grant, with the goal of encouraging fitness and health in the school and eventually opening its doors for the community members to join as well.
The proceeds from the race help with the expenses of maintaining the equipment at the gym as well as providing a part time attendant. The gym is open from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m., Monday through Friday, with the attendant present to assist and answer questions from 2 to 7 p.m.
Classes such as Zumba, held on Mondays, and Spinning, held on Tuesday and Thursday, are also offered.
Registration forms for the race are available at the gym or online at www.active.com. The fee is $15 in advance, or $20 on race day, with shirts for the first 50 entrants.
