As a part of my re-tooling my overall health strategy I have decided to join a few walks that have captured my attention and that support a worthy cause. My first will be the Shamrock Run being held on St. Patrick’s Day (March 17th) 2013. A portion of the proceeds from this run will benefit Doernbecher Children’s Hospital Foundation.
Sign up for this event will be starting November 1st, 2012. I plan on signing up right now as a team of 1, but if you are interested in joining me on the Shamrock Stride portion of the day’s events I would gladly appreciate the company. This portion is 5K.
They limit the field to 35K participants. This may sound like a lot but they have filled up the last three years so joining early is preferable. If a team thang is to happen I believe all participants need to be signed up together via a team captain (me). Entry fees are $36 per person 13 or older, children ages 4-12 are $15 and Teams of 15 or more are $32 per person.
If you have your own thang going on as part of another team and just want to meet before the walk begins I would be more than happy to do that too.
Finally, the band my wife plays in – The Power Pep Band – will also be playing for the runners/walkers.
I hope to see you there.
More to come…
