Registration Deadline Approaching for Sports Center Anniversary Fun Run

To guarantee you receive a fun run t-shirt, you must register by Feb. 24. The last day to register is March 9.

The deadline to register for the Union City Sport Center's 5K/10K Anniversary Fun Run and Walk is coming up fast.

Though the last day to register for the event is March 9, those interested in participating are asked to register early by this Thursday, Feb. 23 in order to secure an official fun run t-shirt.

Now in its fifth year, the event will be held Sunday, March 11 and is open to the entire family — from adults and youth to babies in strollers and pets.

Starting at 9:30 a.m., participants will run or walk in their respective divisions starting at City Hall and continuing along the Alameda Creek Trail (see route map here).

“The event’s purpose is to promote the importance of living a healthy and active life,” Maynard Estrellado, recreation coordinator for the Union City Sports Center, told Patch before last year's run.

Last year, more than 100 residents raced in the rain. Mayor Mark Green was among the events leaders, placing first in the 5K male 55 and over category.

Those interested in participating can register online or at any Union City community center until March 9. You can also download an application here.  For more information, please call (510) 675-5808.

The registration fee is $15 for Union City youth 17 and under and $20 for Union City adults. Non-residents must pay an additional $5. Fun Run & Walk t-shirts will also be on sale for $10 while supplies last.
