Run With the Royals 5K
Q: What is the Run With the Royals 5K?
A: The Run With the Royals 5K is one of only two fundraisers for Saint James Athletic Association (the Fall Golf Outing being the other) which support ALL sports offered at Saint James.

This year's fundraising will focus on replacing the gymnasium bleachers!

Q: But . . . I DON'T run . . . ?
A: Okay, but you can always WALK! Last year, we had many walkers of all ages, who finished the 5K with a smile. At a walking pace, the distance is a very manageable one for experienced or beginning walkers. You can definitely spread the word to family members and friends who do like to run,
