Due to high demand, the Hilltop YMCA 10th Annual Home Front Family Walk/Run will include a half-marathon this year, along with a 5K and 10K, organizers said.

Community members are encouraged to sign up for the fundraising event on Saturday, Nov. 12, which meets at the Bay Trail in Richmond’s Marina Bay. The race raises money for Hilltop YMCA, with 100-percent of proceeds going to fund healthy living programs for local residents.

“Bring your kids, friends, and let’s make this a perfect 10,” organizers said.

The half marathon, costing $55 per adult participant, is new to the 10th running of the event.The 5K and 10K races cost $30 per participant. Children under 12 participate for free.

Registration for races can happen in person at Hilltop YMCA, 4300 Lakeside Dr., until  Nov. 11 at 9:30 p.m. or online here. The deadline for online registration is Nov. 11 at 11:59 p.m.
