Fleet Feet Sports is hosting the 6th annual Summer Sizzler 5K and 10K race on Saturday, August 11th. Said Susan Zepernick, Co-owner of Fleet Feet Sports, "This is an important fund raising event benefiting two local non-profit organizations: The North Valley Animal Disaster Group and The Wings of Eagles. The race will provide them with much needed funding. " The race is also the graduation event for the Fleet Feet No Boundaries, 5K, and 10K summer training teams. The event will provide a lot of mid-summer fun while benefiting the community.
The event is being sponsored by local business Madison Bear Garden, Velocity Strength and Fitness, Fragoso Chiropractic, Donut Rising, The Printed Image, and Ben Beckman Built for Bodywork, and vendor sponsor Saucony. The race includes the return of the post-race bash at Madison Bear Garden. This race is also part of the 2013 Fleet Feet Race Series.
The Summer Sizzler takes place at Cedar Grove with both the 5K in Lower Bidwell Park and 10K taking place in both Lower and Upper Bidwell Park. You can register for the event at http://www.fleetfeetchico.com/races/summer-sizzler. Early registration and shirt deadline is July 28th.
