St. Michael Fast 5k, walk set for July 31

The ninth annual St. Michael Fast 5k and Walk will take place Saturday, July 31, at St. Michael Church in Bradford.

Both the race and walk will have an 8 a.m. start time. Same-day registration will begin at 7, closing 15 minutes before the event begins. The cost of race-day registration will be $25. T-shirts will be available for all registrants.

Preregistration ($20; postmarked by July 20) is available as well as online at under the “Events” page. Print it off, fill out, sign the waiver, enclose payment and mail it in.

Annually, the Fast 5k and Walk benefits the youth of St. Michael Church. Each summer, the youth work with the New Albany Deanery in Faith in Action, where they assist local charities. Additionally, they participate with the Deanery on a mission trip to Campton, Ky., to work in a high poverty area. The funds raised also help cut the expenses for high school-age students who want to attend the One Bread One Cup liturgical leadership conference at St. Meinrad Archabbey and the National Catholic Youth Conference.

Awards will be given out to the first three male and female finishers in each age group as well as the top three male and female finishers overall.

Door prizes, including cash and gift cards from local businesses, will be given away.
