MOUNT VERNON ó The Mount Vernon Colt Football League will host its first 5K fun run and walk and the inaugural Kids Challenge on Saturday, July 13. The run/walk course is a 3.1-mile loop beginning and ending at Yellow Jacket Stadium. The Kids Challenge is a course developed by Dynamic Performance Fitness to jump, climb, run and crawl. The course will be set up on the MV Practice Fields and will be for kids from 4 to 14. Children 6 and under must be accompanied by an adult (at no additional fee). There will be waves of children released in 15-minute increments beginning with our youngest and ending with our oldest children. As the kids get older the obstacles will get harder.
Registration will take place from 7 to 7:45 a.m. for the 5K and from 9 to 9:45 a.m. for the Kidís Challenge. Everyone may participate. There is a fee, which is more the day of the event. There will be no charge for parking in the stadium and MVHS lots. Concessions and restroom facilities will be provided by the MVCFL.
The goal of the event is to raise money for the youth of our community in the form of scholarships for children of the MVCFL, as well as providing scholarships for MVCFL alumni that play for MVHS as seniors in the 2013 football season.
