Is running on your list of fitness goals, but you aren’t sure how to get started? Or perhaps you’re already a runner, but you don’t have the time or you don’t think you’re ready to participate in an organized race?
A virtual 5k might be the answer to your workout woes.
To celebrate the city’s 300th anniversary, Baptist Health System, Tenet Healthcare Foundation, and the YMCA of Greater San Antonio are sponsoring the 300 Miles Quest. This event, which begins with the 10th Annual City Manager’s 5k on October 22nd, encourages everyone in the city to participate by completing 300 miles of running, walking, biking, or swimming before December 31st. According to the 300 Miles Quest website:
This challenge kicks off at the City Manager’s 5K Run on October 22, 2017, and ends on December 31, 2018. Baptist Health System donated $100,000 to the Tricentennial for the 300 Miles program, which will enhance the commemorative year by igniting the community to participate in local 5ks, join running groups and take family walks, for example.
The coolest part? The price and the flexibility!
This is a virtual event, so it’s completely on your schedule. And you can’t beat the price because it’s FREE! Simply log your miles through their handy app or website.
