Submitted By the City of Union City
Dust off your cape and get prepared for the annual Mark Green Sports CenterÕs Anniversary 5K/10K ÒFun Run & WalkÓ on Sunday, March 16! This yearÕs theme is ÒSuper HeroÓ and we will be holding a costume contest for the best Super Hero Outfit.

Runners, walkers and meanderers will start at City Hall and follow the Alameda Creek Trail, winding back around to finish where they started.
Established to celebrate the opening of the Sports Center, the ÒFun RunÓ is now in its 7th year of promoting health, community, and, of course, a good time. The Mark Green Sports Center offers a full state-of-the-art fitness center, aerobics room, locker rooms, child care center and a 12,000 square foot gymnasium offering new adult sports programs, open gym time for basketball, volleyball, badminton, table tennis and family fitness programming. Health and nutrition classes, personal training, small group specialty exercise programs and fitness therapy will be available.
