LCCC hosts fitness fest

Lehigh Carbon Community College and its Foundation will host the Fall Fitness Fest, Live and Virtual 5K and 10K event, Oct. 18 to 23 to benefit LCCC students and the college’s food pantry.

Because this is both a live and virtual event, instructions differ, but registration can be made for either event at https://www.eventbrite.com/e/fall-fitness-fest-5k-runwalk-or-10k-run-tickets-167768679637.

Participants of the Virtual 5K Run/Walk or the Virtual 10K Run can complete it anywhere – in their neighborhood, on the trail, around the track.

Participants can also decide when they complete the event anytime between Oct. 18-23.

Use a fitness tracking app or wearable device such as a Fitbit or Apple Watch to track your time.

Once completed, download your recorded time and send your results to foundation@lccc.edu no later than 6 p.m., Oct. 24.

Results should include: hours/minutes/seconds along with your full name, city/town and state, as well as photos.

LCCC’s live event will take place Oct. 23, rain or shine, on a challenging, picturesque route on the college’s main campus in Schnecksville.

Registration begins 8 a.m., with the 10K run starting 9 a.m. and the 5k Run/Walk 9:10 a.m.

Prizes will be awarded at the conclusion.

The first 100 registrants will receive a free T-shirt.

Free food will be available.

The race is geared to motivate friends, family, LCCC students and alumni, as well as the community to get out and exercise, while keeping safe and maintaining social distance and raising funds to benefit LCCC students.

There is an entry fee to the public for the 5K and 10K per person.

LCCC alumni and students and the military with ID will need to pay a small fee.
