DESCRIPTION

This will be a first annual event hosted by the Grant Playground and Recreation Association that will take place at Grant City Park. This event is held in memory of the late Dan Robinson whose love for God and country was known by many throughout our community. Dan was instrumental in the formation of our non-profit organization and laid the groundwork for the development of Kidtopia playground. The proceeds from this event will benefit Kidtopia and help support it’s continued needs.

The 5K Race: This 5K walk/run will begin at Grant City Park, travel through the scenic, mountain town of Grant and pass by New Life Methodist Church. The course is mostly flat with a few slight inclines. Volunteers will be along the route to help guide runners in the right direction. Water stations will be set up every mile and a first aid station at the halfway point. The race will end back at Grant City Park. Rehydration & snacks will be available before and after the races. Medical support will also be available on site during the event.

The Kid’s Color Run: This event will take place at Grant City Park. Kid’s ages 5-12 will have a blast as they run through a mini-course and get showered in technicolor powders of yellow, pink, green, orange, blue and purple.

Sleep-in Option: If you want to support our cause but simply aren’t interested in getting up to race, consider the Sleep-In Option. All sleep in registrants will receive a race t-shirt and enjoy the cozy comforts of your own bed race morning. T-shirts can be collected at our registration table until 1pm the day of the race.

Wet Dog Sprint Tri @ Point Mallard Park Decatur
Jul 10 @ 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!????

Start, finish, and transition will take place at the main boat launch just off of US Highway 278.
