Guam - The 3rd Annual Y Tinaotao 5K Run/Walk goes down this Saturday starting at the Agana Cathedral. Show time is at 5am with go time set for 6am. You can register for the run at Hornet Sports in Tamuning or at the Guam Humanities Council, call 472-4460/61 for more information.

Cathy Flores with the Council said, "We are going to take off on Chalan Santo Papa and take a right on Aspinal Ave, take a left on West Soledad and go all the way down to 9th Street and then we're going to go along the back side which is O'Brien Drive.

"Then we'll take another left at Martyr Street and that will bring you around the Bank of Hawaii and the race will end on Seaton Blvd. West. Along the 5K route we are going to have the participants from Asuncion Church singing and down on 9th street our water station we'll have the Notre Dame National Honor Society. The runners will also have the pleasure of listening to Patrick Palomo."

Executive director of the GHC Kimberlee Kihleng added, " This is what we do with the Humanities is to present cultural and educational programs to the community so this is not only a healthy lifestyle choice for the weekend but it's also a way for the community to learn about the capital city of Hagatna and it's history. All along the course we will have banners that will mark important historical sites in Hagatna and we also developed a program brochure for the run, which gives you a complete history of the capital city as well as the specific details of historic sites along the course and through out Hagatna.

"What we do is we have an annual fundraiser every year, we are a non-profit organization so we need to raise money for our operation and to conduct our programs. So this is one way we do it through this 5k so we are providing a healthy lifestyle choice and we are presenting programs that look at the history of our capital city and we are raising funds for our organizations so that we can continue to present these important educational programs."
