GREENSBURG—Final preparations for the 2nd Annual Steve Snider “It’s A Beautiful Day” 5K to honor the late, former Greensburg Salem coach and educator are complete and the event is set for Monday, May 27th, at 8:30 a.m.

Presented by the Greensburg YMCA, the race will start on Urania Ave., near Sunset Café and end at Offutt Field in Greensburg, taking participants through town. Walkers will partially continue their route on the 5-Star Trail, splitting at Huff Avenue, and finishing back on the Five Star Trail due to time limitations for road closures.

There will be several road closures, beginning at 7:30 a.m. on Urania and on the course route. Participants who planned to park around Offutt Field need to be parked before the road closures. Recommended parking for the event are all the public garages, especially the Bell Garage, located on W. Otterman St., below the courthouse. On-street parking is first-come, first-served. Parking is free for the day.

Race packet pick-up (and registration) will be held Sunday, May 26th from 4-8 p.m., at Offutt Field. Race day pick-up is 7-8 a.m. The opening ceremony will be held at 8:15 a.m., followed by the start at 8:30 a.m.

Overall and age group awards will be given. Cash prizes for top three male and female overall:
• First Place—$499
• Second Place—$250
• Third Place—$100

There also will be awards presented to the top 3 finishers in each age category. A kids’ race will be held at 9:30 a.m. at Offutt Field.

Proceeds benefit the Steve Snider Memorial Scholarship fund for the Greensburg Salem School District, youth activities at the Greensburg YMCA, and the revitalization of the City of Greensburg playgrounds. The long-time, award-winning and beloved teacher and track /cross country coach passed away in February 2022, after a long battle with heart complications.
