Runners, walkers get ready for Saturday’s Austin POWER 5K

Registration is still open for Saturday’s race – the fifth annual – and organizers hope to surpass 700 participants. Walkers and runners can register in person on Friday at 5840 W. Chicago Ave. until 5 p.m. and on race day beginning at 7 a.m. Loretto Hospital and Ald. Chris Taliaferro’s office are among the groups and businesses that will be fielding teams.

What a great day

There was a big turnout last weekend for the pre-Austin POWER 5k walk/run at the Columbus Park Refectory; it was the kickoff for the September event.
