The 3rd Annual JVA 5k/10k and Kid’s Run is this Saturday, September 7th. Early packet pick up for those already registered will start on Friday, September 6th from noon through 6:00PM at Big Dog Running Company on Broadway. Packet pick up will resume at 7:00 am on race day at Big Dog. Registrations are still being accepted if you have not signed up yet and can be done any time before or during packet pick up. Please note the registration fees increase on race day. Come out for a great run to support a great cause and remember to say thanks to all the wonderful volunteers!
Packet pick up for Country’s Midnight Express 5K will be Saturday, Aug 24 from 6pm until 11:30pm at Country’s Barbecue – 3137 Mercury Drive – we will be located beside the Tshirt pick up table in the parking lot of the restaurant. Look for the Columbus Roadrunner sign.
This is important – please read!
All Summer Series participants must pick up their number from the Columbus Roadrunner table – you will receive your race number & shirt.
Once you pick up your number, please remember to bring it to run. If you forget your number you will have to buy another number – I do not have extra numbers – I will not be able to reassign numbers. The time that is posted for your number will be the time that is figured in the results for the Series.
Bring your Summer Series shirt to have it marked!
Parking is wherever you can find but I recommend you park at Kmart, Publix or the Library & walk to the starting area. It will be crowded so don’t wait until the last minute to park & pick up your number & shirt.
See a volunteer – say THANKS!
