SEARHC, Stride 365 co-host Sitka WhaleFest Fun Run on Saturday, Nov. 2

The SouthEast Alaska Regional Health Consortium (SEARHC) and Run Sitka’s Stride 365 program will co-host the Sitka WhaleFest Fun Run on Saturday, Nov. 2.

Runners should meet at 9 a.m. for a 10 a.m. race start and finish at Whale Park, 2500 Sawmill Creek Road (note, this is a location change from previous SEARHC/Stride 365 runs). The cost of the 10- or five-kilometer race and two-mile walk is a donation of $5. Proceeds this month benefit the Sitka Sound Science Center and Sitka WhaleFest.

This event has t-shirts for the first 125 people to enter, and medals for the top finishers. Runners can register online at http://www.sitkawhalefest.org, or they can meet from 5-7 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 1, at Harrigan Centennial Hall to pre-register.

Each month SEARHC and Run Sitka (#runsitka) host a Stride 365 event on the first Saturday of every month, with proceeds going to a different charity in Sitka.
