Additional comments from the race organizers …
The course has been officially measured by the track club, we’ll have a DJ, great awards, and tons of door prizes (gift certificates to lots of local restaurants and business). If you register by 8/8/2010 (Sunday night!), you are guaranteed to receive a t-shirt, a reusable grocery bag, and a stainless steel water bottle. Cost for the 5K is $20. There is also a kids run for $10 – all finishers in the kids run will receive an award. All proceeds from the event will go directly to Fit Families. BorgWarner is providing the funding for the event and making a generous donation to Fit Families.
