SAN ANTONIO – Free fitness and wellness activities will be available to San Antonio residents beginning Saturday in the city's fifth installment of Fit Pass, a city Park and Recreation program.

The kickoff takes place at Pearsall Park Saturday with the Fit Pass Dash 5K at 8 a.m., and additional activities happening through 11 a.m. There will also be free Fitness in the Park classes, along with health and wellness vendors, health screenings and prize giveaways.

Hundreds of activities will be offered to residents throughout the course of the program.
