SportsFit-Leakesville 5K Postponed

colorrun

 

For two years, SportsFit of Leakesville has sponsored a 5K to promote health and fitness and to benefit local schools with PE equipment. This 5k has taken place the first week of February. This year the date will change.

Due to poor weather conditions in December, Leakesville Elementary School had to postpone their 5K Color Run to this Saturday, Jan 20th. As it would be so close to the date we normally have our 5K, we will reschedule ours to a later date.

We encourage you to support LES in their 5K Color Run this weekend and support all our local schools.

We will announce our Sportsfit 5K at a later date.

Happy New Year from Encore Rehabilitation and SportsFit- Leakesville
