November 29th

If you can't make it for early packet pickup at Big Dog on Friday you can pickup your packet before the race on Saturday.  We will have volunteers at 6:30am to hand out packets and register runners.

It is ok for a friend or family member to pickup your packet.

Have a great day!

November 15th

The couch to 5k is almost done and the group is looking great!  Very excited for everyone that stuck with it - GOOD JOB!

Please remember the last day for on-line registration for the races is this Saturday, November 17th.  You must be preregistered to be guaranteed a shirt.

Please also remember - part of your registration is a gift donation.  Please do not wrap the present.  We give all the presents to the Auburn Police Department.  They then take care of getting the presents to the children.

We are very grateful to all of our sponsors.  I have finally updated the list.

Only 2 weeks left!  YAHOO!

November 9th

Good news, Aubie will be at the 1 mile fun run.  Make sure to bring the kids and get lots of pictures.

The 1 mile fun run is $10 - this is if you would like your child to get a shirt. If you just want them to run the race and "have fun" there is no charge. Please either e-mail me or send me a message on Facebook.

Bikes and dogs are not allowed on the race course. This has to do with our liability insurance.

3 more weeks until the races!

Wow what a weekend! The registrations are really starting to come in. Thank you for registering early, it makes planning so much easier.
Please remember if you don't receive an e-mail from me I have not received your registration.

If you have not registered yet, online registration will end on November 17th on the Active web page. If you mail your registration please have it post marked by the 17th. 
If you were looking for some competition Michele Dean from Lee-Scott is recruiting the track team to run the race - they are fast!

Linda Christensen continues to work tirelessly on getting us sponsors. I will have the blog updated soon with the additional sponsors.

Big Dog was a great sponsor last year and they continue to do an awesome job. The Couch to 5k is going strong. We had over 50 people show up last night, IN THE RAIN!

Early packet pickup will be available Friday before the race.

It is getting really close, only 3 MORE WEEKS!

More to come soon.
