HUNTINGTON — A list of more than 400 pre-registered runners and walkers for The Herald-Dispatch West Virginia 5K Championship was posted Monday afternoon on www.wv5k.com.

Registration continues for the Saturday morning race in downtown Huntington. Online sign-up and more information is available at www.wv5k.com. Registration is $25 in advance and Friday at a Race Expo. Race-day registration is $30.

The Race Expo where participants can pick up race packets is Friday from 5 to 8 p.m. at St. Mary’s Center for Education, Fifth Avenue and 29th Street. A free spaghetti dinner is offered for participants and is $5 for non-participants. The first 500 participants to pick up their race packets will receive a free 2013 West Virginia 5K Championship drinking glass.

Vendors will be at the expo to provide health-oriented resources.

Proceeds from the race go to United Way of the River Cities. The 2012 race had 805 people finish and raised $19,000.
