On Saturday, St. Joseph plays host to hundreds of runners and walkers in the annual SJO 5K. Packet pick-up and registration takes place tonight at the St. Joseph United Methodist Church from 5 to 8 p.m.
Registration will also take place the day of the event from 5:45 a.m. until 7 a.m.
The race starts at 7:30 a.m. with the kids fun run after race.
The 5K, now in its 12th year, is a fundraiser for the St. Joseph Middle School and St. Joseph-Ogden High School cross country and track teams.
Event proceeds help pay for uniforms, warm-ups, travel and other costs during the season.
The top three runners in each age group will receive medals and the top 200 finishers will receive a water bottle.
