The race begins at 7:30 a.m. in Simpson Park, with registration open at 7 a.m. There will be a charge to register this year, as grant funding from the Heartland Foundation has ended. The cost to register will be $15 before August 16th, and $30 after that date. Those who pre-register before August 16th are guaranteed a free t-shirt. Participants can register up to the day of the race, but the health center cannot guarantee a shirt, but will try to accommodate.

Participants can pre-register by picking up a form at the health center, located at 800 Adam Drive or printing their own from our website at livcohealthcenter.com. Payment must accompany the registration form.

Walk Chillicothe and the sponsors of the race would like to encourage kids, adults, families, well behaved dogs on a leash and handicapped residents to join in the Labor Day Race. Just-for-fun prizes will be awarded in the Fun Walk, and for those who wish to compete in the 5K Run, medals will be awarded in various classes.
Proceeds from this year’s race will be donated to the North Missouri Center for Youth and Families, a PowerUP! Afterschool Program for Youth here in Chillicothe.

The health center has continued the efforts of the Walk Chillicothe project in order to plant the seed that walking is possible for everyone and to offer an easy solution for sedentary people to take the first step to active living. Labor Day also marks the start of the Fall Walking Challenge. Registration for the Fall Challenge will begin August 12th, with signups welcomed up to the day of the race.

For more information about the Labor Day Race, or to print out a registration form, visit livcohealthcenter.com or our Facebook page at LivingstonCounty HealthCenter. Call 646-5506 with any questions.
