EDWARDS — Start off your New Year’s resolution to take better care of yourself by signing up for a 5K on New Year’s Day. The Hair of the Dog race offers a 5K and 1-mile course. The race starts at 11 a.m. on Thursday at e|Town restaurant in The Riverwalk at Edwards. The course follows paved roads and paths and finishes back at e|Town for post-race food and drink. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to the Eagle Valley Humane Society.

“We had a great turnout last year, and we expect this year to have another strong showing,” said Cynthia Bruggeman, race organizer. “It is a great excuse to skip that extra cocktail on New Year’s Eve and start the New Year off healthy and fresh, or if you need to get rid of that hangover, sweat out some toxins.”

Racers are invited to sign up early at http://www.active.com to avoid the $5 price increase on race day.

The cost is $25 for the 5K and $15 for the 1-mile race. There are T-shirts for finishers while they last; only pre-registered runners are guaranteed a shirt. Dogs are welcome but they must be on a leash.
