THE RACE IS ON – VIRTUALLY, THAT IS!!!
First and foremost, we love our racers, our sponsors and our ministry partners! The partnership we share makes a difference around the world! Right now, we know our partners stand in need, they have communicated that with us. We believe we have an exciting and unique opportunity to help them.
We will be continuing on with the Centerpoint Half, 5K, fun run, prayer walk and yes, even the phantom runner! You can be a vital part of helping these ministries thrive by participating in our virtual races.
We will be packing bags here with some extra goodies to help you in your race.
On Friday, April 3rd from 4:00-7:00 and Saturday, April 4th from 7:00-8:30, you can pick up your race bag, via our awesome drive thru service, at the YMCA on McQueen Smith. You don’t even have to leave your car!
Next, you run your distance. You can use our route, one of our suggested routes in your race bag or the route of your choice. You can run alone or with your training partners. Lots of freedom here!
Then, email your times, preferably with a picture of your time and distance, to firstname.lastname@example.org by Saturday, April 11th at midnight. That’s right, you have a full week to run your best time.
Watch Monday, April 13th as we announce our winners in each category and award your trophies. We will have door prizes drawings for everyone who is registered and extra ones eligible for everyone who sends in race times- yes, even our walkers! How exciting is that!
Take a snapshot while you are out running and include it with your times to encourage the tribe.
We think this is going to be a lot of fun in a crazy time. Thanks so much for helping out!
Proceeds sponsor team members on mission, locally and internationally. In the past teams have ministered in Mexico, Dominican Republic, Peru, Cuba, Moldova, Haiti and Honduras, as well as various areas locally and stateside. We are excited to see the opportunities the Lord gives us this year.
