Woodstock 5K

The Woodstock 5K is in Anniston next weekend, Saturday, Aug. 2.
I had never heard of this race until today but, judging from the Woodstock 5K website, it's probably a really fun race to run!
Proceeds from the race go to the United Cerebral Palsy Telethon and the UCP Center.
There is no race-day registration, but you can still register online or via U.S. mail with a postmark no later than Monday July 27.
A printable registration form is available at the Woodstock 5K website.
