The James City County Police Department is hosting its inaugural “Mustache to Save A Life” 8K, 5K and one-mile fun run later this month, and Historic Triangle residents have just a few more days to qualify for the early-bird registration price.

Early registration for the races, which are slated for the morning of May 21, closes May 7, after which time prices will increase.

This event is being run to benefit Project Lifesaver – a program for citizens with dementia, autism, Alzheimer’s or other traumatic brain injury that may cause a person to wander and get lost.

Project Lifesaver provides participants with a bracelet with a radio frequency, which assists first responders in locating them should they ever go missing.

The race will take place along a scenic, paved course in Ford’s Colony. The fun run begins at 7:30 a.m., followed by the 8K at 8 a.m. and the 5K at 8:10 a.m.

Awards will be distributed to the top racers and the participants with the best real and best costume mustaches.

Through May 7, registration for the 5K and 8K is $30, or $5 for the fun run. Early-bird registrants are guaranteed a T-shirt.
