Well, tomorrow is the big Girls on the Run race! It seems like it just crept up on me, but here it is! Like the last two years, the 5K will be held at the Marilla Center in Morgantown and will offer a variety of activities and booths. To name a few:
- Zumba – 10 a.m.
- Yoga – post race
- Happy Hair Station (That’s where you’ll find me!) – available all day. This is a great place for our GOTR participants to stop by and get some awesome Goody hair decor.
- Pinky Promise Station – available all day. Stop by this booth and take the Pinky Promise Challenge to help put an end to bullying by having your pinky nails painted blue.
- Shopping Area – available all day.
- Eco Race Events (ERE) will be recycling and will also be accepting donations of any old race shirts and other clothes, including old running shoes. Clean, usable clothes and shoes will be donated to be used again and will also be used to make new textiles and shoes will be given to Nike to chop up for running track surfaces. Old trophies will also be collected for reuse.
As you can see, this will be a fun-filled, jam packed event. Don’t worry, we have a map for all of these awesome activities! So, what if you’ve already registered? You can pick up your pre-registration packet tonight at Health Works in Morgantown between 5:30 and 7 p.m. Any questions you have about the race can be answered by me or one of our volunteers. If you can’t make it, you can always get your packet tomorrow morning starting at 8:30 a.m. Remember the race starts at 10:30 a.m., so get your packet early! If you haven’t registered, you can register starting at 8:30 a.m. tomorrow inside the Marilla Center. The race does fill up quickly, so come early if you want a spot.
Parking is available along East Brockway Avenue and in lots surrounding the Marilla Center, including the lot by the upper ball field and playground. Carpooling is encouraged! Lastly, if you play to come, don’t forget to bring a towel, as we won’t let rain stop us from enjoying the day! Should thunderstorms be in the area, participants won’t be put at risk. Cancellations will be posted on our Facebook page.
Ok, that covers it! Have a great weekend and hope to see some of you there!
