YORKVILLE – Dearborn County's longest-running road race continues its tradition this Sunday, July 29.

St. Martin's 5K (3.1 mile) Country Run hits York Ridge Road for the 32nd consecutive years, starting at 9:30 a.m.

A feature of the annual St. Martin's Church Picnic, the event follows paved road from St. Martin's Church, out and back, with some small hills. Split times will be given at each mile.

Race day registration is $9. Official race t-shirts can be purchased for an additional $9. Entry forms are available on-line at runningspot.com.

Awards will be presented to men's and women's overall winners, plus the top three finishers in each age group for men and women. Age groups include: 14 and under, 15-19, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59 and 60 and over.

St. Martin's unique Most Improved Runner award also will be given to a pre-registered runner who competed in the 2011 race. Masters Awards, for the oldest runner, also will be presented.

Major award winners from the 2011 St. Martin's Country Run were Alan Apsley (19:06) and Sarah Voltz (21:15), with Linden Ogden winning the Masters Award and Nicky Martini the Most Improved Runner (by 5:28).
