SPRING 2018 GOTR 5K

Register now for the GOTR 5K on May 5th! We are excited to host our first GOTR 5K on May 5, 2018 at the UAH campus in Huntsville, AL. This non-competitive, celebratory 5K is open to the public and we invite our community to come run or volunteer to learn more about Girls on the Run. Pre-5K fun festivities begin at 8am and run begins at 9am. All finishers receive a medal!

GRATITUDE ON THE RUN

These girls may not understand it now, or even think about it in the future, but they have each taught me something about every single one of the lessons we have discussed; about teamwork, about real beauty, about friendship, about positivity, about compassion, about physically and mentally healthy behaviors, and yes, about gratitude.

HELP SUPPORT GIRLS ON THE RUN

Donate to Girls on the Run today to help us provide scholarships to girls in our area!

The 5K Course is a 3.1 mile out-and-back course on the UAH Campus starting/ending at the Sorority/Fraternity Row. The 5K participants will pass a water stop at approximately mile 1.0 and 2.0. Cheer Teams will also be placed along the course to cheer on the girls and 5K participants!

OVERVIEW:
Grayson Highlands is Virginia’s third largest state park with just over 4500 acres of land. This beautiful park is located in Grayson County, Southern Virginia. This is the HIGHEST state park in Virginia. They are best known for our beautiful vistas and the wild ponies that live in the highlands. Expect to see spectacular views from all of the trails and overlooks, On a clear day, you can see for 70 miles. The park offers 15 miles of trails which we will run almost ALL of. This is one of the few places left in the south where there are still fir trees. Runners of both races will be running into this. You will see waterfalls, as far as you can see views, streams, rhododendron tunnels, 100+ year old built stone walls, views of two states and more single track than you can imagine!
This is the first and only trail race within Grayson Highlands State Park! You will have a view of Mt. Rogers, the HIGHEST point in Virginia. This race runs over Little Pinnacle or Haw Orchard Mountain, at 5,089 ft, making it the HIGHEST race in Virginia!
The trails are beautiful but anything but smooth or easy. There is some serious elevation change as well as some VERY rocky/technical sections. The course for both races will have a little bit of everything in it from short steep climbs to smooth rolling hills to flat. This has to be the prettiest run in Virginia!
Bring a camera and enjoy the course. Who knows you might even see a pony when you’re running!

Unfortunately we can not mail shirts if you do not attend the race. The shirts are for runners who actually run and the rest of the shirts we give to volunteers or donate to charity. Thanks for understanding!

prizes/awards

Price, prizes, awards…

Overall 1-3 male and female for both races.

all runners get a shirt and a finisher award. The race in part benefits the park, local rescue squad and the friends group.

Wet Dog Sprint Tri @ Point Mallard Park Decatur
Jun 15 @ 7:00 am – 10:00 am

After a year of no dogs, Big Brothers Big Sisters has decided that we missed y’all way too much! The staff and Board of Directors sat down, hashed it out, and made a BIG decision to BRING BACK THE DOG!

This is still a fundraiser for Big Brothers Big Sisters serving Morgan, Lawrence, Winston and Cullman Counties and a very major fundraiser at that! There are some BIG changes though, the main one being the DATE!

In order to make our race appealing to more people and not be in competition with other local races, we have decided to move it to MAY 19TH, 2018. The venue, Point Mallard Park, is still the same and the start time is also the same, 7:00 a.m. The water park will be CLOSED, so traffic issues and parking issues are no long issues! We are set to be one of the first triathlons in our area…what an awesome way to train and get ready for the bigger ones!

On-line registration should be open this afternoon! There are some “Early Dog” specials that will end on February 15th, so for the best deals GO AHEAD AND REGISTER!

As always, we are available to answer any and all questions, either through email to wetdog@bbbsmcal.org OR by phone, 256-353-0157. Feel free to reach out to us with any questions, issues, or just to say HI!

WE ARE SO EXCITED TO BRING BACK THE DOG!????
