What better way to spend a Saturday morning than getting in a good run while supporting a great cause? You'll have your chance Saturday morning in Yoakum!

The second annual Dash for Downs 5K and Fun Run will be at 8 a.m. Saturday in Yoakum. Runners will compete in five age categories, 18 and under, 19-25, 26-39 and 40 and over. The children's Fun Run will be after the 5K.  Registration is $25 for the 5K and $10 for the Fun Run. The Victoria Advocate reports that the proceeds benefit the Hallettsville Downs Syndrome League. Medals will be awarded to the top three finishers in each age division.

The starting point is the Yoakum Shape Shop Fitness and Wellness Center, 116 E. Gonzales St., and the route winds through historic downtown Yoakum, around the Yoakum High School facilities and back to the starting point.
