The YMCA of Southwest Michigan and Brandywine Community Schools are excited to partner for the 13th annual Cat Tracks 5K Trail Run/Walk on Saturday, August 10. The race weaves around school grounds, along the cross country course featuring “the Swamp,” adjoining property owned by the Low Family Farm, and ends on the Brandywine High School track.

Cat Tracks 5K Trail Run/Walk is a fundraising event sponsored by the Brandywine Foundation in partnership with the YMCA of Southwest Michigan. Proceeds from the race support Summer My Way® day camp at Brandywine, which provides physical activity and health and nutrition education for kids in summer school.

Registration for the race is open. Those interested in running can register online at ymcaswm.com or at the Niles-Buchanan YMCA. Registration is $20 now through July 27 and increases to $25 July 28 through race day. Both the run and walk begin at 9:00 a.m.

Medals will be distributed to the first three finishers in each age group for both the walk and run events. Trophies will be given to the top overall male and female finishers in the run. Chip timing will be used.

Packet pickup and registration will be held in the Brandywine High School cafeteria on Friday, August 3 from 5:30 - 7:00 p.m. and Saturday, August 4 from 7:00 -8:30 a.m.
