- Register early
Organizers of the Bridge-to-Bridge 5K and 10K are encouraging the community to sign up for the race as soon as possible.
Participants can register as late as 7:30 to 8:30 a.m. Saturday, April 12, the day of the race, but race director Karen Johnston advises against enrolling late. A registration session will be held from 5 to 7 p.m. Friday, April 11, at the YMCA.
Online registration closes Saturday, April 5. Paper forms are available at Karen’s Hallmark Shop, which Johnston owns, in the Danville Mall.
The 5K is walk or run, the 10K is run only and the 1 mile Fun Run is for children. The 5 and 10K start at 9:30 a.m., and the Fun Run starts at 9 a.m.

Promoting health and wellness is a top priority for the annual Bridge-to-Bridge 5K and 10K, race director Karen Johnston said. “My goal is to really push people to be proactive about their health and being healthy,” she said.
“Everybody knows somebody who’s touched by cancer,” Johnston said. She happens to be one of those people. The idea for the race — set April 12 this year — came one day when Johnston was in the waiting room at the oncology lab. She was there for cancer treatments.
