On your marks! Runners and walkers take to the streets this Saturday
VERGENNES — From the fastest runners to most pedestrian walkers and everyone in between is invited to join the 5K, 10K and 15K races at Vergennes Day this coming Saturday morning.
The 36th annual Little City Road Races and Fun Run will kick off the Saturday morning activities and support a local charity.
The 5K run and walk will take you through city streets, finishing at the City Green. It’s a great opportunity for friends and family to get out and participate in a fun-filled and healthy event.
