Hey kids! This has been the best summer ever, and it’s not over yet!
If you are nine or under and sign up really soon, you will get a free Bowfest ticket, which means more spending money for the day! Your registration for the run costs only $10 and if you like, one of your parents gets to run or walk the 1.5K with you. They can use your run as a warm-up for the 5K and 10K run later.
It all starts at 8:30 on the ferry dock. At the end of the run you get a great medal, then fruit and muffins to reward you for all that hard work; what’s more, the first boy and the first girl home win a great prize, and at the prize giving at 10:15, you may win a draw prize as well. What a great deal!
If you are a really good runner, you could do the 5k or 10k run with your parents or friends or on your own. You won’t get lost because there are people to guide you along the way. The long runs and the 5K walk start as soon as the kids’ run is done at 9am.
So hurry off to Phoenix or First Credit Union and hand in your registration forms, or your parents can do it online if they don’t have time, here.
You can pick up your Komera bib with your number on it on Friday, August 28 between 4 and 7pm at the Rotary Run for Rwanda tent on the Library lawn. That way you avoid the crowds on Saturday morning before the run starts.
If by any chance, you forget to get your registration done before Saturday, you can do it at the last moment, but then you probably won’t get the free Bowfest ticket! By the way, you and your parents can buy advance tickets to Bowfest on Friday afternoon and on Saturday morning before the run. That saves standing in line at the gates later on.
See you on August 29! By the way, the Library lawn is the best spot for watching the parade, and you’ll be right there at the right time!
