Andy's Road Race to Support Stop the Bleed Program
July 29, 2019
HURON, SD – Proceeds from the 38th annual Andy’s Road Race, Bike Ride and Harvey Gleich Memorial Walk will benefit a local effort to train bystanders to be first responders in the event of a mass casualty event, major accident or injury.
Stop the Bleed is a national campaign which teaches bystanders how to care for serious wounds using pressure, tourniquets and other means. The Huron Regional Medical Center Foundation and several local partners are raising money to provide training for staff and place tourniquet kits in local and area schools.
The road race, which will be held at Memorial Park on Saturday, August 31 and is named after a former Huron track coach Andy Kleinsasser, is divided into various age groups running the 5K and 10K races. There is also a 5K fun walk and 5- and 23-mile bike rides for participants of any age and fitness level. For the younger kids, there is a fun run for elementary children (no registration fee required).
Andy’s takes place on the Saturday before Labor Day during the State Fair and all participants will receive a free one-day gate pass to the Fair. The SD Beef Council will provide free beef jerky to participants. Medals will be awarded to top finishers in each division of the 5K and 10K races.
Early-bird registration for the run or bike ride is $25 until July 29 and $30 until August 19. Registration received between August 20 and August 27 is $35. Walker registration is $30. All registration fees include refreshments and a performance t-shirt. Businesses interested in a sponsorship or a corporate rate for employee participants should contact Kim Rieger at 605-353-6573. More information and registration is available online at www.huronregional.org/andys or www.allsportcentral.com.
