Nonprofit organization Newcastle Running Club will produce the second annual Newcastle 5K Run/Walk Saturday in Lake Boren Park. The race will start promptly at 9 a.m., and festivities will immediately follow.

Register online at or at Lake Boren Park from 7-8 a.m. Saturday. Online registration ends at noon tomorrow.

Online registration costs $25 per person or $20 per person for groups of four or more. Registration the day of the event costs $30 per person or $25 per person for groups of four or more.

Participants will need check in at Lake Boren Park between 7 and 8:30 a.m. Saturday. After the race, the course will close at 10:30 a.m.

The 3.1-mile route is the same as last year, starting and ending in the park. Participants will be divided into different categories by age, and the top three male and female finishers in each category will receive medals. All participants will receive T-shirts.

Some proceeds will go toward next year’s Newcastle 5K, and the rest will be donated to Hazen High School’s cross country and track teams.
