32nd Annual Silver Classic 5K Run & 3K Walk
Residents from around the community are encouraged to lace up their sneakers and participate in one of the oldest races in the area. Metroplex Health System will host its 32nd Annual Silver Classic 5K Run & 3K Walk on Sunday, March 18 beginning at 8:30 a.m.
The Silver Classic race is part of the Cen-Tex Race Series, which offers local runners over a dozen races throughout the year and an annual banquet honoring the top runners in each division.
The Silver Classic course begins and ends at the Metroplex Hospital, looping around the Central Texas College campus; different courses are marked for walkers and runners around the campuses. During the event, participants are offered Body Mass Index (BMI) screenings, goody bags, and race t-shirts. Local sponsors give both time and money to support the race and provide the runners with free water and fruit.
All proceeds of the Metroplex Silver Classic support our efforts to educate and promote health and wellness through free immunization clinics, screenings, health fairs and wellness classes.
If you are interested in becoming a sponsor, contact LaToya Ellis, race coordinator, by phone (254) 519-8202 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
