RoCo Fit hosts free Monster Mash Dash 5k

Everyone is invited to participate in the upcoming fun, free, Monster Mash Dash 5k and 1 mile fun run-walk, Thursday, 6 p.m., Oct. 25 at Claremore Lake Park. All ages and fitness levels are welcome to participate. Comfortable costumes that allow walking or running safely are encouraged, but optional. This event marks the finish of RoCo Fit’s 2018 fall session. We want people to participate, celebrate and cheer on everyone as they make their goal of a 5k and becoming healthier.

This is a new course; the start/finish line is at the last shelter across the lake from the boat/fishing dock. We will take a group photo at 5:45 p.m. at the shelter and start races immediately afterwards. This is a fun Mock race, so there is no registration or official timing, but we will have a clock running for the entire race. This will be the first time many of our Couch to 5k program participants have finished 3.1 miles in a race. They have prepared these past 12 weeks and persevered through challenges improving their health each step. The mentors are excited to walk and run beside their group participants and encourage them across the finish line marking a milestone and creating an unforgettable memory with them.

RoCo Fit wants to thank all our sponsors and supporters for this event: RoCo Fit volunteer mentors, Rogers County Health Department, Healthy Community Partnership/Volunteers for Youth/TSET Healthy Living Program, and City of Claremore.
