LONG BEACH, CA: St. Mary Medical Center and St. Anthony High School announce the 3rd Annual SAINTS Run 5K, Saturday, April 28th. Joining together we are expecting more than 500+ Run/Walk participants in this year’s event. St. Anthony High School reaches out into the community each year to bring the public closer to the high school’s top quality college preparatory program offered by Long Beach’s only Catholic high school.
“Having St. Mary Medical Center join St. Anthony’s as the Official Race Sponsor this year was a natural,” states Gina Maguire, high school President. “We share St. Mary’s commitment to caring, education and promotion of a healthy lifestyle. The 5K Race is a great way to live out our shared mission of outreach and service.”
The race which starts at the Belmont Pier at 8:00 am, April 28th, is open to the community and continues to grow each year. This year registration has already jumped 75% during the early registration period. The course is a fast, flat, out-and-back race along the beautiful Long Beach shore line starting at Belmont Pier. For experienced runners, the course is ideal for attaining a new personal best, and is officially timed by Pacific Coast Race Timing. All entrants will receive a specially-designed race T-shirt; optional blood screening tests sponsored by St. Mary Medical Center; and the top three runners in all age groups will receive medals. The race is organized through the SAHS Parents and Educator in Partnership (PEP) organization in conjunction with St. Mary Medical Center who this year will launch an official employee team to participate and compete on race day.
