Extreme cold and ice put a damper on Weatherford College’s Coyote Chase Race, originally scheduled in late November, but it’s on again now, rain or shine.

Rescheduled, the race will now take place Saturday at WC. The 5K and 1-mile run is a fundraiser for Weatherford College Foundation scholarships.

All ages and fitness levels are welcome to walk or run. Those registered for the November race are still registered and encouraged to come participate.

“We’re especially wanting all those kids and parents and friends registered in the School Challenge to come on down,” said Linda Bagwell, coordinating assistant for the event. “Most already have their T-shirts and goodie bags, and we have more, if there are others not previously registered.

“It’s a fun day, and big trophies are awarded to the schools that bring in the most runners and demonstrate their school spirit. Every kid gets a ribbon just for participating.”

All runners will receive T-shirts and goodies, and trophies will be awarded in gender and age categories.

The 1 mile starts at 9 a.m., and the 5K starts at 9:30 a.m. Cost is $20 for adults before the race (through Thursday) and $25 on race day. Kids 12 and under are $15, no matter when they register. On-line registration, a route map and other info can be found at www.coyotechaserace.com.
