Take steps to get fit by participating in the 2013 Portfest 5K Walk & Run.
Sponsored by ASU-Newport and Cintas, this fun event will be held Saturday, May 25 at ASU-Newport. Individual registration starts at 7 a.m. with the race starting at 8 a.m. behind Walton Hall. Participants may enter as an individual in one of six age divisions including youth. Plaques will be awarded to the fastest male and female runner and walker in each age group. The top male and female will receive $100 each. Free race t-shirts will be given to all participants while supplies last, so register early. In addition, Portfest directors are recruiting teams again this year for some fun competition. A group of four may enter either the walking or running division as a team. Teams may consist of males and females of all ages. The winning walking and running teams will receive a “traveling trophy” to display for one year. Individuals participating on a team will also be eligible for the individual age division awards. Team deadline is Noon on Friday, May 24 and is $60 per team. Individual entry fee is $20 by May 24 or $25 the day of the race. To enter as an individual, go to www.stearnsracetiming.com (for online registration) or www.portfest.org (to print an entry form).
