Round Rocker: Parks and Recreation 411

Get Signed Up for the 5K For Clay

The annual 5K For Clay takes place August 16, 2008. Register now before late registration fees set in! Late registration fees will begin August 13 so make sure you have signed up before then. To register for the 5K, visit or stop by the Parks and Recreation Department (301 W. Bagdad) or the Clay Madsen Recreation Center (1600 Gattis School Rd).

The 5K For Clay is fun run/ walk. All the proceeds will help benefit the Clay Madsen Recreation Center. That means that your registration fees will go right back into the community by providing funding for classes, camps, equipment, ect.

If you have never run a 5K before, then you need to come out and experience one. I ran my first 5K last year as a requirement for my soccer team. When I started the race, I have to admit, I was not very happy about running on my day off, but I turned on my ipod and started jamming to my new playlist and before you know it I was enjoying a nice cruise run. When I finished I so excited!! I felt good, healthy, and accomplished. I think that everyone should experience that sense of accomplishment you get from finishing a race. If you have ran a race before than you know what I am talking about, and you should come out for the 5K For Clay!!

In addition to the great feeling of accomplishment, the City of Round Rock wants to reward its runners. Each female and male runner (according to different age groups) will be rewarded with a medal for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place. ALSO, the first female and male runners to cross the finish line will recieve a $100 gift card to REI.

So visit or stop by our offices to make sure you get signed up. You do not want to miss this! I hope to see you bright and early next Saturday morning the 16th. Feel free to leave me a comment, I love to hear from you!! Are you planning to attend?
