Star Beacon

CONNEAUT — The Windmill Run, which includes a 5K run/walk, 1.5-mile walk and children’s run, returns to Conneaut’s lakefront on July 27.

New for 2013 is an on-line registration option and cash prizes for the top two overall finishers in both the men’s and women’s divisions ($100 for first-place, $50 for second-place).

Sponsors this year are White Turkey Drive-In and Gerdes Pharmacy. Proceeds benefit the Conneaut Human Resources Center, Conneaut Arts Center and the Conneaut Music Boosters.

All events begin at the CAC, 1025 Buffalo St. The Kids’ Fun Run starts at 7:45 a.m., the 5K Run at 8 a.m. and the walk a few minutes later.

Same-day registration opens at 6:30 a.m. and closes at 7:40 a.m. People who register before July 13 can save $5 on the entry fee. Registration forms are available at the CHRC, 327 Mill St.; Snap Fitness, 230 State St.; and the arts center, and also on the race’s Facebook page.

On-line registration is also available, for a small service charge, at raceit.com.
