The Newcastle 5K, in its third year this year, will likely join the Newcastle Days lineup this summer, according to Newcastle Days committee officials.

The race, which typically takes place in late August, will be held the morning of Sept. 10 as part of the festivities in Lake Boren Park.

The race typically begins and ends in Lake Boren Park. It follows a 3.1-mile path, circles the park and follows city trails to the south.

Valley Medical Center has again committed to sponsoring Newcastle Days with $10,000.

YMCA seeks students for international trip

The YMCA of Greater Seattle will send about 40 teenagers from Western Washington overseas this summer to learn about life and customs in other cultures as well as complete community service.

The trips are offered through the Global Teens Program and this year students will travel to Japan, South Korea, Colombia or Senegal for two weeks.

Students will meet twice a month leading up to the trip to learn more about the country they will visit, and the students will share their experiences abroad at the annual YMCA Growing Global Connections Celebration on Oct. 13.

Cost of renting picnic shelters, community room now simpler

Fees for renting the Lake Boren Park picnic shelters and the City Hall community room recently became standardized, making the process of renting the spaces simpler.

Previously, rental fees varied based on how long the space was rented, the size of the group using the space and the day of the week.

Now, renting the picnic shelter for a half-day will cost residents $60 and nonresidents $120 every day. A full-day rental will cost $120 or $240, respectively. Renting the community room will now cost $30 per hour for residents with a $150 deposit and $60 per hour for nonresidents with a $300 deposit.

Community groups and nonprofit organizations may rent the community room without an hourly fee, but they must pay a $150 deposit.
