Running for health


The Carl Sandburg Pantherlon 5K run is expanding as organizers aim to foster healthy habits among children while raising money for the Fort Hunt School. 

Participants now have the second option of a one-mile fun run and walk as well as free 20-minute clinics with professional runners and coaches. Runners and walkers can learn proper stretching and warm-up techniques, form and strategy. 
Metropolitan area running groups and stores will be on hand after the race to talk healthy eating, promote other races and answer questions.
Registration is $20 before April 23, $25 after April 24 and $30 on race day. Fun run and walk registration is $10 per participant through the day of the race.
