Sabattus Rec Club BlackJack 5k

SABATTUS — This is an untimed 5k event on Thursday, July 11. Registration is at 5 p.m. with the race going off at 6 p.m. The cost is three dollars. The 3.1 mile course beginning and ending at the Oak Hill Middle School, on Ballpark Rd. in Sabattus.

Those wishing to do so may run the course, but walkers are surely welcome. The idea is to get out and exercise, and have a little fun while doing so. Each participant will receive a card at the 2-mile mark and another at the 3-mile mark. If a Blackjack (face card and an ace) is achieved with the second card, they can call out “Blackjack!” and their name will be taken for a prize. Anyone wishing a third card to try for 21 may get one at the finish line. Small prizes will be awarded for anyone reaching 21.

As this is the first attempt at this type of event, our registration cost is low to encourage participation. Cash prizes will be determined by the number of entrants and the number of Blackjacks and 21 totals.
