RUN 2013

DSC_7031In case you haven’t heard, there are some changes to take note of  for our annual running event.

We’ve taken over an event previously organized by the Manitoba Runners’ Association. Our event is now called RUN…the Awesome Twosome with Haiti.  The deadline for early bird registration has been extended to Wednesday,  July 17, 2013—so grab a partner and register to join the fun!

You may also get this information on our Facebook event page:

The Race: You and your partner begin, back-to-back, at the start line. At the gun, one runner will race the 5 km course clockwise; the other will race counter-clockwise. You will cross paths at some point during the race—a great opportunity to cheer each other on!

The Winners: Prizes will be given out for the winners in six different age categories. But remember, you are in this together. So your total 10 km time will be calculated by adding each partner’s 5K time together. And your age category will be determined by adding each partner’s age together.

You may read a PDF brochure with information and a registration form, but we’re encouraging folks to register online. Here’s the link:
The first 100 online registrations will get a gift from Haiti!

Here is a donation sheet for those of you who will be soliciting donations.
