Cheerios Challenge

As you sit in your easy chair this morning reading The Covington News, you might want to consider adding this Saturday's Cheerios Challenge to your calendar.

Spring weather is in full force and there's no better time to go for a walk or run than during the Covington Y's 11th annual road race, the proceeds of which go to benefit numerous local athletic and fitness programs. There's an event for everyone, including a one mile fun, 5K and 10K.

The Cheerios Challenge, which is supported by General Mills and several other local organizations, is certified by U.S.A. Track and Field and is also a qualifying race for the Peachtree Road Race. The faster your finish the closer to the front you get to start during the annual Peachtree Road Race in Atlanta.

The Cheerios Challenge is a great way to get exercise, spend quality time with family and support our local Y all at the same time.
