Where else can you walk or run a 5k then walk around and sample wonderful variations of local grits? The Prattville YMCA has the only race of it’s kind. The Sixth Nitty Gritty 5K will be on Saturday, October 19th. The race will begin at 8am. Awards are given to top runners in each age group and the fastest male and female go home with a golden spoon of their own. All runners receive a shirt until they are gone.
The race will begin and end on the campus of the Willis Bradford Branch of the Prattville YMCA (972 McQueen Smith Rd S ). The race path will take you through the Silver Hills neighborhood in east Prattville. A water station will be located at the half way point as well as the finish line. Racers are encouraged to visit the hospitality area as well as enjoy all the Grits you can eat following the race.
For the third year the title sponsor of the race will be Promise Physical Therapy. Promise Physical Therapy opened its doors in July 2003. They chose the name Promise to be a reflection of our faith in God…the God of promises. In light of that, we believe that this practice is a product of the provisional promise He has made to all of us that He will provide us with everything we need if we will follow Him.
