Forsyth County Parks and Recreation’s Future Olympians Track Competition originally scheduled for Sunday has been moved to Oct. 20, due to a scheduling conflict.
The annual event will be held at the track at Forsyth Central High School, with registration starting at noon and the event following at 1 p.m. The fee is $5 per child.
“The Future Olympians Track Competition is always an afternoon of fun for our county’s elementary school students,” said Jerry Kinsey, parks and recreation director. “We hope everyone will be able to come out and participate on our new date.”
The competition is for girls and boys in kindergarten through fifth grade. Participants team up with fellow students to compete against other schools for the title of “2013 Forsyth County Elementary School Track Champion.”
Medals are presented to those placing first, second and third in an event.
Plaques are presented to the schools placing first, second and third in overall points.
A plaque is also presented to the school with the most participants. T-shirts will be given to the first 500 to register.
