Island Rec is very excited to announce the fourth running of the now famous Hill of Thrills Soap Box Race on Sunday, May 19. This is a classic old-fashioned “gravity” race where people run their homemade nonmotorized contraptions down Grover Street by the elementary school. The racing categories are ages 5-8, 9-12, 13-15 and 16-adult. There are as many adult contestants as a youth. This popular event is quickly becoming a local classic not to be missed. Races go from 1–3 p.m. Race packets and applications can be found online or at the office. Register by May 9 for $10; price increases $5 thereafter. For more information or registration, visit www.IslandRec.org, call 360-378-4953 or drop by Island Rec’s office at 580 Guard St. Monday–Friday 11 a.m. -5 p.m.
