Thanks!

Thanks for everyone who came out today – even though it was cold it turned out to be a great day and we had an amazing turnout of over 500 people!

It couldn’t have come together as great as it did without the help of a lot of amazing people in our community.  Our committee members: Matt Stork, Stephanie VanDelinder, Sarah Saunders, Julie Miller, Kelly Saner, and Heather Tillman.  All I can say is you guys rock!  Police Chief Mark Hulse and his officers who helped including Officer Dawes on the course this morning.   Don Rapalee, Doug Marchionda, and Dan Doyle who coordinated and did an unbelievable job clearing our course after the snow and ice and kept our runners safe.  BrIan Murphy for our EMT onsite.  Our race day volunteers:  Jack Flynn, Olivia Rodriguez, Dan Wheeler, Felicia Smalley & Family, Jared, The Clancy crew, Kathy Waye, Judson Reid, Wade Saunders, Morgan & Bonnie Basler, Bonnie & Dick Curbeau, Bob VanDelinder, Alexander Family, Jason Saner, Amy Banach, Brenda Nielsen, Amber Brady, Liz Castner, Anna Hurley, and David Hull.

Race Day News

Hi All!

Well we have some great news – due to the cold weather we will be holding bib pickup, registration, race day shirt pickup, awards and serving refreshments INDOORS at the St. Michael Church basement.  It is directly across from the school and the starting line.  Volunteers and signs will be out front directing people.

Participants and spectators are welcome to stay indoors as long as they want and bathrooms are indoors as well.

We are doing our absolute best to clear the course and the race will go on!!!

PARKING:  Please note the church parking lot will be for church parking only as a mass will be going on upstairs in the church from 8-9.

Stay warm and see you soon!  Nothing like a run (or walk) in some fresh snow to make you feel like a kid again (or just a kid if you are one!)

Race Day is Approaching….

4 days away from race day!!! If anyone has checked the weather (or stepped outside) you’d see our weather for the big day looks a bit chillier than last year. Don’t let that stop you from coming out for this fun morning!

We have a few things to help keep everyone warm:

* A refreshment stand with hot chocolate, coffee, and lots of treats if you don’t have time to make breakfast on your way out the door!

* Outdoor heaters!! (thanks Carey’s Rental)

* CrossFit Penn Yan’s Sean Dallos will be there to give everyone a great warmup before the race (be ready by 8!)

The course will be plowed, salted and sanded and ready for everyone on race morning!

Looking forward to seeing everyone there!
