It is an easy entry if the race is in San Marcos. This past Saturday the Blue Santa’s 5 Miler and 5K race was held out at the soccer fields. Next Saturday, September 30th, the Kiwanis Pumpkin Dash 5K will be held out at Country Estates. This is a popular race with not a large entry number so the prospect of winning an award is good.
