Team competition added for Allies in Disguise

Sept. 15, 2017

Some new features have been added to this year's Allies in Disguise 5K and Mile, including a team competition in the 5K.

Allies in Disguise is set for 10 a.m. on Sunday, Oct. 29 at Painted Post's Craig Park.

The Halloween costume run/walk is the fall fundraiser for AIM Independent Living Center, and proceeds support programs and services for people with disabilities in the Southern Tier.

The 5K will have a four-person team competition. The top male, female and mixed teams - based on combined times - will win prizes. The team members also compete individually in the 5K, which will have a professional timing service, Integrity Racing.

Prizes will go to the overall male and female winners, and medals to the top three finishers in nine age-group categories in the 5K.

Also new this year, prizes will be awarded to the top male and female wheelchair finishers in the 5K.

And, a prize will go to the best Halloween costume at the event.

There will be snacks, refreshments, music and children's activities in Craig Park. The entry fee is $20, with discounts for families and 5K teams, and includes an Allies in Disguise T-shirt.
