8 More Weeks until the Races!

Good afternoon!
The time is really flying by.
This Tuesday will be the first meeting for the Couch to 5K group.  This will be lead by Adam Pugh, the manager of the Auburn Big Dog Running Store.  They will meet every Tuesday and Thursday in the parking lot of the Jule Collins Smith Museum of Fine Art.  All contact information is listed on the link at the top of this page.  THIS IS FREE!
The final 5k will be run at the Toys for Tots race - cost for the race is $15 plus a toy.

I have posted the race on about 10 different local web pages.  If you know of any others that I should get the race on please don't hesitate to contact me.

Our sponsors are a little slower to respond this year.  Seems like there is more competition for races this year.  I am very grateful for those who have already responded.  If you know anyone that would be interested in sponsoring (either monetary or products) please contact me.

I have already met with Reggie from Big Dog and we will be using chip timing for the 5k and 10k.  This will make results much quicker and more accurate.

The new logo for the shirts was created by MasterGraphics.  Their artist is the best, hope you like it.

Have a great week!

11 Weeks until the races!

I have posted the mail in registration form. If you mail in please make sure it is post marked by November 17th.  The link on the top will take you to the pdf file.
All routes have been approved by the Auburn City Police.
We should have a graphic soon.
Please don't forget about the Couch to 5K.  This is a great way to get started running and to meet new people.  The link is at the top of the page for more information.
Have a great week.

12 weeks until the races!

Just a few updates.
For those of you who ran the 10K last year, you know it was off by about two-tenths of a mile.  That has been corrected.  The second half of the 10K is different from previous years.  Please check out the map and contact me if you have any questions.

I have been talking to Reggie at Big Dog regarding chip timing for the race.  With the number of  participants we had last year this makes more sense.  The results should be much quicker and more accurate.

I have also contacted the schedulers for Aubie.  It is still too early, but at least the request has been sent!  I am very confident we will have him for the race.

Very excited to mention that Mac McCracken, known in some circles at "DJ Majesty" will be supplying music for the races.  THANK YOU MAC!!!

We have a few more registrations, I know it is still early, but I get so excited:0)

Please don't forget about the Couch to 5K - Tell your friends!!!!

Hope you have a fantastic weekend.
