‘Run for Your Life’ 5K running or walking, it’s a great way to start the day
The newspaper was the original race sponsor, followed by the fire department, Meeker High School’s cross-country team and the Eastern Rio Blanco Metropolitan Park and Recreation District.
The 5-kilometer course, just a little more than three miles, winds throughout Meeker’s downtown residential area, covering familiar territory for most of the participants. The top finishers, male and female, in the walking and running races, receive prizes. Everyone receives a T-shirt for his or her $15 registration fee. Registration starts at 6:30 a.m. and the race begins at 7:30.
