Spring is just around the corner and it’s time to make good on January’s New Year’s resolutions by putting on a pair of running shoes and joining South Texas College in the inaugural Spring Break Stampede 5K/10K run on March 10 at Bentsen Recreational Park, located at 2500 S. Bentsen Palm Drive in Mission.

“This is a community event for health and fitness,” said STC Student Life Coordinator and race event co-organizer Armando Ponce. “Something as simple as walking or jogging has lots of health benefits.”

The race is partially sponsored by STC’s Health & Wellness Center, and includes 15 men’s and women’s divisions from age 10-and-under to 75-and-over. The pre-registration entry fee is $15 for the general public and $10 for STC affiliates, or $20 the day of the event.

Pre-registered runners can pick up their race packet the day before the event on March 9 from 2 to 8 p.m. at STC’s Pecan Campus Health & Wellness Center, located at 2515 Pecan Plaza in McAllen.

Race-day registration begins at 6:30 a.m. on March 10, and the race will start at 7:30 a.m.

The top three men’s and women’s finishers in each age division will be given an award. The categories are: 0-10, 11-15, 16-20, 21-24, 25-29, 30-34, 35-39, 40-44, 45-49, 50-54, 55-59, 60-64, 65-69, 70-74, and 75-plus.
