Hot Springs On The GO!

The Sentinel-Record - HER - Hot Springs - - News -

Chilly evenings at high school football games, cozy sweaters and scarves, and bon­fires with friends are just a few of the perks of fall. But of­ten­times it's the fall com­fort food and overindul­gences that can put us on the wrong foot go­ing into the hol­i­days.

Hot Springs has al­ways been a place of com­fort, heal­ing and health. Com­bine that with the love of a good fes­ti­val or event, and one will find that our city also knows how to stay fit while hav­ing fun.

On Oct. 31, zom­bies will be tak­ing over Cedar Glades Park for the ben­e­fit of United Way of Gar­land County. Hu­man run­ners will get a two-minute head start and be given three flags to wear, which the zom­bie run­ners will try to cap­ture from them. When a run­ner loses all three of their flags, they then be­come a zom­bie and join in try­ing to turn the other run­ners into zom­bies. Reg­is­tra­tion is $30 and run­ners can register as hu­mans or zom­bies. Zom­bie face paint will be done by Hot Springs Beauty Col­lege for $5 per per­son.

The newly re­branded Spa Run­ning Fes­ti­val will fea­ture the 10K and 5K from years past, but has added the new Sum­mit(2) Chal­lenge Half Marathon to the mix. The half marathon has gar­nered the at­ten­tion of run­ners from Ok­la­homa, Texas and Florida and is sure to be a hit for years to come.

Richard Webb at Hot Springs Ath­letic & Rac­quet Club is de­ter­mined to get the com­mu­nity liv­ing bet­ter and feel­ing bet­ter through his classes and one-on-one ses­sions. Hav­ing a pas­sion for show­ing peo­ple that weight loss and healthy liv­ing is achiev­able by any­one through com­mit­ment and hard work, Webb works with peo­ple of all ages to im­prove their lives.

Why wait un­til the new year? There's no bet­ter time than the present to get started on those res­o­lu­tions.
