Thurtene 5K road race March 28

The annual Thurtene 5K road race will be held at 9 a.m. March 28 in Forest Park. This year’s course will start at The Muny.

The cost to register is $15, and all proceeds will benefit Youth In Need, Thurtene’s chosen charity this year. Youth In Need has served children, youth and families in the greater St. Louis area since 1974.

Trophies will be awarded to the top three overall male and female finishers in each of seven age divisions.

There will be T-shirts, water bottles, food and drinks for all participants. Organizers are hoping to have nearly 150 runners.
