Sports Briefs for Sept. 17, 2012: FMCE sets date for final fall 5k race

The Friends of Moffat County Education had been planning a third 5-kilometer race after two successful events during the summer.

Now the third race is set.

The Leaf Cruncher 5k and One Mile Fun Run will take place at 8 a.m. Saturday in Loudy-Simpson Park. It will finish before Moffat County High School hosts its home cross-country meet later in the morning.

The cost for registration is $20 for an adult and $5 for a child (17 and younger).

Participants can register by messaging FMCE on Facebook or showing up early Saturday. Pre-registration begins at 7:15 a.m. Registering by Sept. 18 will ensure runners a t-shirt in their size.

The one-mile fun run will start around 9:30 a.m., between the middle school and high school cross-country races. The high school meet will begin at 10 a.m.

All proceeds will benefit FMCE initiatives. For more information, go to the Friends of Moffat County Education Facebook page or
