The highly anticipated St. Patty's Day 5K is coming to the City of Bridges.
The event kicks off at 8 a.m. on Saturday. It will take off from the Beach Ottumwa. Tuesday was the last day for early bird registration. Ticket prices will go up to $30 dollars Wednesday. The Ottumwa YMCA is the sponsor of the 5K.
â??This is an excellent time to be able to get engaged in your 5K with the weather starting to warm up, it's a great opportunity for you to get healthy and get active outside engaged with the community,â?? Garrett Ross, Ottumwa YMCA marketing director said. â??We currently have approximately 42 people registered for the run. It's a great way to meet people and build a community that's really going to engage in active opportunities as well.â??
5K awards will be given out to the top three male and top three female finishers. The next race the Ottumwa YMCA will host will be held on April 26th. For more information contact the Y at 641-683-6571.
