The Los Angeles Kings are promoting a 5km/10km on Sept. 8 to benefit the Hydrocephalus Association. The run will start at South Redondo Beach- Riviera Village and participants have the choice of competing in a shorter run or a longer run.
The 5km run is $40 and the 10km run is $50. There is a $5 discount to military, students and children and a $15 discount for season ticket members. The cost includes a Kings preseason ticket, a participation medal and a t-shirt.
The start times for the 5km and 10km have not yet been announced. Participants are encouraged to arrive 90 minutes before their race in order to park and register. The male and female winners of the race will receive $250.00. Hydrocephalus is a condition where there is an accumulation of cerebrospinal fluid in the brain. Conditions may include headaches, poor balance, urinary problems and double vision.
The races on Sept. 8 are also part of the Daryl Evans Fit to Be King Summer Run Club. The club, which has a $100 membership fee, allows participants to train alongside Kings guests and fans every Sunday from June 3 to Sept. 2. Members also get entry into the run on Sept. 8, a Fit to be King t-shirt and socks.
Evans played 105 games for the Kings from 1981 to 1985. During the 1982-83 season, Evans had 18 goals and 22 assists for 40 points. He has been the Los Angeles Kings radio analyst for the last 20 seasons.
