Cinco K Draws Huge NorthBay Contingent



A brisk breeze greeted Team NorthBay members as they readied to run, jog and walk in the third annual Cinco K Run & Taco Fiesta on Saturday, May 6. Many, wearing their “Your Wellness — It’s Why We’re Here” T-shirts,  showed up early enough to join in the team photo, that was captured both on film and by a drone.

In all, more than 290 NorthBay supporters signed up to participate in the event, and the largest NorthBay team was the Pace Makers, according to race organizers.

The event is a fund-raiser for the Fairfield Police Activities League, and NorthBay Healthcare was the presenting sponsor. In all, more than 710 participants turned out this year, an even larger showing than last year, according to race organizers.

Team NorthBay’s fastest runner was Chris Dalton, an IT systems engineer, who ran the 5K and finished third overall, and first in the adult field with a time of 19.11.

Before the event began, the crowd was warmed up with Zumba moves lead by fitness instructors from HealthSpring Fitness. Folklorico dancers entertained runners and spectators throughout the morning, and a number of vendors were on hand, as well.

The event started and ended at the Anheuser-Busch Visitors Center, and participants were rewarded with “2017 Finisher” medallions at the finish line as well as tacos and tickets to enjoy a beer garden experience within the Visitors Center.

The Fairfield Police Activities League will receive approximately $20,000 to support their programs from the fundraiser.
