The race will kick-off at 9 a.m. at the Riverfront Plaza right in front of Crows Feet Commons. Packet (shirt) pick-up will start at 8 a.m. You may choose to run or walk in the 2k, 5k or 10 mile distance, all of which are untimed. This is for FUN! Registration is a recommended $5 minimum donation per person, and 5 can of food for NeighborImpact. Bring the canned food race morning. Last year, this race collected 5,500 pounds of food. Bring some extra this year, so that goal can be shattered! If you want to proudly display your love of this event, consider purchasing an event t-shirt when you register, for an additional $10. Unisex, women and children sizes are available. Pick up your shirt race morning if you register prior Wednesday, 11/13. Shirts are available after that date, just add $5 and pick-up your shirt 12/13 -- think Christmas present to yourself.
Now don't forget the PIE! Bring a pie (or three) to share at the event! You may choose to enter your pie(s) into the pie baking contest, or just let people eat it, without participating in the contest. The contest will have "traditional" or "open" pie categories. Prizes will be awarded to the top 3 pies in each category, and don't forget the fame you will have if you win one of these prizes.
The course will be an out and back on the 1st Street River Trail, which is located behind FootZone. There will be course markers noting the 2k, 5k and 10k turn around points. The 10 mile turnaround will be a green gate, located at the end of the trail. Reminder -- this is an untimed event!
What an awesome event FootZone has put together to help everyone celebrate Thanksgiving, exercise, and help NeighborImpact. Get signed up now, start thinking of a pie recipe, and I'll see you at the races!
