Early-bird registration ends soon for the 38th annual Andy’s Road Race, Bike Ride and Harvey Gleich Memorial Walk, which will be held Saturday, August 31, at Memorial Park in Huron.
The road race, named after a former Huron track coach Andy Kleinsasser, is divided into various age groups running the 5K and 10K races. There is also a 5K fun walk and 5- and 23-mile bike rides for participants of any age and fitness level. For the younger kids, there is a fun run after the races (no registration fee required).
Proceeds from this year’s event will benefit “Stop the Bleed,” a local effort to train bystanders to be first responders in the event of a mass casualty event, major accident or injury. Huron Regional Medical Center Foundation and several local partners are raising money to provide training and place tourniquet kits in local and area schools.
Early-bird registration for the run or bike ride is $30 until August 19. Registration received between August 20 and August 27 is $35. Walker registration is $30. All registration fees include refreshments, a performance t-shirt, a free State Fair one-day gate pass and beef jerky.
