Runners and walkers of every age will converge on Fredericksburg on Saturday, April 25 for the 21st annual Fredericksburg Wildflower Run/Walk.
"There's something for just about everyone, no matter if you're into timed running, walking or strolling leisurely along with children or pets," said Dawn Bourgeois, director of the Hill Country Memorial Wellness Center, one of the event's sponsors.
The new route will follow a scenic course in and around Fredericksburg, beginning and ending downtown at Marktplatz where parking, restrooms and registration will be available.
The Wildflower Run offers 5K and 10K distances for runners and walkers of all ages, along with a children's fun run for ages 12 and younger. Electronic chip timing will be provided by Athlete Guild out of New Braunfels.
Stretch and pre-warm-up is sponsored and led by fitness professionals from the Wellness Center at 8 am near the race starting line. The run begins at 8:30 am, and the walk begins at 8:35 am. The children's fun run (200 yard dash) begins at 10 am.
All run and walk registrants will receive souvenir T-shirts, and the first 200 registrants will receive a jar of wildflower jelly from Fischer & Wieser Specialty Foods of Fredericksburg.
The cost to participate is $20 per walker and $20 per runner. Mailed entry forms should be postmarked no later than April 20. Late- or race-day registration at Marktplatz is $25 per person. The fee for children is $1 per child.
Registration forms are also available through the Wellness Center link on Hill Country Memorial's website at www. hillcountrymemorial.org. On-line registration is also available at https://endurancecui.active.com/event-reg/select-race?e=13360252.
