Race Day Reminders

Thanks to everyone who came to the Bling Party last night. Pics are now on the Facebook page and will soon be on the blog.

The big day is tomorrow! Here are some updates that you may have forgotten. See you soon!

Carpool/Caravan – We will meet at Carpenter Park Recreation Center between 6:30 – 6:45 AM on race day. Please park behind the building in the west parking lot by the baseball fields. We will carpool/caravan to the Red Parking Garage on Tennyson Parkway. The line of traffic is always long! All roads in the area will close at 7:30 AM. In your packets is a map of the course and parking. If we get separated or you can’t meet us for any reason, we will reconvene at the team photo area. We will meet there at 7:30 AM to get the picture taken. After that, you are on your own to run, walk, or stroll the race course!

What To Wear – Please wear your team t-shirt. We can show everyone our bling. It will be easier to see each other that way. If you do have not a 2009 t-shirt, please wear either your last year’s t-shirt or your 2009 Komen t-shirt. The race bib goes on the front of your shirt.

I Know Someone Who Still Wants On The Team – Tell them to sign up on race day! There will be a registration booth there. The catch is, I cannot get them a team t-shirt.

Chip Timing – Chip timing will be available for $5. If you would like to compete for an award, you must have a chip. If you preregistered for one, it should come in your packet. Runners competing for awards should enter the start corral by 7:45 AM. Timed runners must be registered by 7:45 AM on race morning.

Fundraising – Our fundraising goal is $2,000. Fundraising is optional, but encouraged. You can collect donations online by sending an email from the site. You can also send Thank You Cards. You can also get cash and check donations. If you need a paper form for fundraising, please let me know. There are prizes for those who raise $500 or more.
