There’s still time to register for Running of the Elk race this Sunday

There won't be any running elk, but there will be plenty of walkers and runners from Elk Grove turning out for the  second annual Kaiser Permanente Running of the Elk in this weekend. Some 2,000 walkers and runners are expected to take part in a Half Marathon, Two-Person Relay or Thrive 5K. There is still time for you to join them and help to raise money for the Elk Grove Youth Sports Foundation, providing scholarships for children in need to participate in sports leagues. A scholarship will cover most of the necessary expenses and allow every child an opportunity to participate in sports.
