DeSales Catholic School in Lockport is hosting its seventh annual “Race for Fitness” on Saturday.

The family-focused event will include a 5K race, a one-mile Fun Run, and a Kids Dash for ages 8 and under. Proceeds from the event will support the DeSales Home and School Association.

The race route has been modified for 2015 in order to provide a safer course to accommodate runners of all ages. Also, this year there are three new age group categories (with prizes) for the 5K event: Under 10, 10-11 and 12-14.

The first 250 race registrants will receive a commemorative Race For Fitness t-shirt bearing the logos of all the event sponsors.

Race-day registration will open in the school gymnasium at 8 a.m. The entry fee is $25 for the 5K, and $10 for the 1-mile walk/run, and all participants ages 14 and under pay half price. Children ages 8 and under are invited to get the day's activities started at 9 a.m. with the free Kids Dash around the school playing field.

The Race for Fitness is dedicated to the memory of Tim Chesko, a Lockport resident, tri-athlete and marathon runner who was active both in the community, and as a parent at DeSales. Chesko passed away unexpectedly in 2008. His wife, Jody Chesko, President of Niagara County Produce, is proud of the continued growth of the race.

“Tim encouraged our children to be involved in his pursuit of a healthy lifestyle, often training right alongside him,” Ms. Chesko said. “I am always so touched by the number of families that participate in the event, from the oldest to the youngest – it is a day of fitness and fun for everyone, and we are proud to be a part of it.” Ms. Chesko and her children, Leah, Evan and Jenna, will serve as the official starters for all of the Race for Fitness events.

Race for Fitness Entry forms are available at DeSales Catholic School, all Niagara County Produce locations and online at More information and race course maps can be found at
