If your New Year's resolutions involve getting more exercise, you should sign up now for the 2020 Young Athletes Foundation races that are a part of the KP Challenge.

Registration opened January 1 for the Saint Fennessy 4K, Fitger’s 5K and the Park Point 5-Miler.  You can register for an individual race, or sign up for the KP Challenge where you do all three races and receive a KP Challenge branded jacket.
