Weekend Planning: Woodstock 5K / UCP Telethon 2015

Geek Alabama Weekend Planning

This weekend in Anniston is very big!  First off, the 2015 Woodstock 5K takes place in Anniston early Saturday morning with the race kicking off at 7:30 am.  The 35th annual Woodstock 5K and Kidstock 1 mile run will feature over 1000 runners running throughout the streets and historic neighborhoods in East Anniston.  Again this year they are proud to host the Road Runners Club of America’s Southern Region 5K Championship. Woodstock is a challenging 5K with world class start/finish lines, their famous up the hill finish on Woodstock Avenue and then a great after-race celebration with food, live music, fellowship, and vendors, in front of Anniston High School.  Learn more about the Woodstock 5K at:  http://www.annistonrunners.com/woodstock5k/

Also this weekend is the 2015 UCP Telethon!  The 57th Annual UCP Telethon will be held on Saturday, August 1st, from 6 pm – 10 pm, and Sunday, August 2nd, from noon – 6 pm at the Anniston Meeting Center.  Don’t miss all the fun and excitement! Join them at the meeting center for their annual silent auction with some fabulous items to be auctioned. Also, they will have some great talent on-stage and great food from local restaurants at the concession stand. If you are looking for family fun and entertainment, this event is for you. The great thing about it is, all proceeds from this event will help sponsor therapeutic services and programs for children and adults with developmental disabilities in the community!
