Participants in the 2011 edition of the 5K Burgher Dash sprint off the starting line.
Dozens of area residents are expected to compete this weekend in a footrace that’s become a community tradition in the four years it has been in existence.
The 5K Burgher Dash is to be held Saturday June 1 at the Warrensburg Elementary School off Library Ave.
The footrace is not only intended to raise money for the school’s PRIDE behavior incentive program, but also to bring the school community together in a healthy, enjoyable activity, event organizers said this week.
The race starts at the Warrensburg Elementary School on James St. All student runners and walkers receive a participation award. Cotton T-shirts will be presented to the first 150 participants. Competition awards are given to the top three finishers, male and female.
Entry fee is $20 for adults, $10 for students, $5 for young children, and $45 maximum per family.
Ample parking is available in the parking lot areas of the Elementary school. Water will be available along the course.
Participants are to pick up race packets in the Elementary Gym from 8:30 a.m. to 9:15 a.m. on race day
