Registration for the 31st Annual Cypress 5K & 10K Run/Walk is underway! The Race will be held Saturday, July 28, start time 7:30am at the Cypress Civic Center, 5275 Orange Ave.
The City of Cypress Recreation and Community Services has again teamed up with the locally based Cancer Support Foundation. Participants can help cancer patients and their families right here in our community. Hundreds are helped every year through support groups, financial help, rides to treatment and many other vital services. To contribute, race participants can add a donation to their registration or call the Foundation at (562) 799-3131.
This All-American, small town certified race course includes electronic timing. Prize money will be awarded to the top three overall finishers in the 10K for both male and female, as well as age division medals for both the 5K & 10K races. Post Race Awards will take place at the Race Finish Line. Immediately following the awards, just one block away, visit the Cypress Community Festival, which features 200 vendors, live entertainment, and a beer garden.
Over 1400 participants are expected to run in this fast & flat certified course, an additional 300 are expected to take part in the 5K Walk, taking place on the same course at the same time as the Run. The walk is a recreational, non-competitive, untimed event offered to include involvement of those who do not wish to run.
