It’s time to sign up for the Bucket of Blood Races scheduled on Saturday, July 15. This annual event takes place in conjunction with the Holbrook’s Wild West Days, a two-day event filled with fun, food and entertainment.

There are three races to choose from, a 5K, a running half-marathon and a 20-mile bike race. Each race has age categories. Entry fees are $20 for the 5K, $55 for the half marathon and $25 for the bike race, with registration available online at Active.com. Included in the price of the race are a swag bag, a free breakfast or lunch ticket, a T-shirt and a beer ticket for those over 21.

The half-marathon and bike race will begin at 6 a.m., and the 5K will start at 6:30 a.m. Race packets will be available the day before the race at the Wild West Days festival and the races will be held southeast of Holbrook at the start of Old Woodruff Road.
