My apologies for the long lapse in posts, no excuse other than a very full and busy life. I know many are in the final days of their taper, firmly focused on their looming fall event, so I know this post will get scant attention, but I wanted to give you a heads-up anyway.
CFAR’s inaugural 10K is tentatively scheduled for Sat May 20, 2017 (start – 9 AM, awards – 10:30 AM, course closes – 11 AM).
Sat May 20, 2017 is also the 3rd annual Waynesboro Brewmaster Beer Festival (12:30 – 4 PM).
Nope. We know that many of you have been asking for this unique pairing for a long time, and next May (fingers crossed), it will finally become a reality.
A few preliminary concept ideas:
Family Friendly Community Event – Everyone is invited; runners, walkers, wheelchairs, strollers, dogs, etc.
Family Friendly Race Fees – Priced to encourage everyone’s participation
Two distances – 10K, Kid’s 1-mile Fun Run
Scenic 6.2 mile loop – Start in Center Square, run through 3 – 4 parks (Renfrew, Otterbein, Memorial, Rotary) and finish in Center Square
Unique Event Keepsakes – Custom finisher medal, Christmas ornament, pottery, etc.
Discounted Admission Tickets – Beer Festival, Waynesboro Theater
Youth Art Contest – Artful renderings of the inaugural event by area youth
Race registration – Opens on or about Feb 14, 2017
Traditional CFAR race offerings?
Absolutely. On-line registration, post race food and beverage, on-course water/aid tables, event shirts, goodie bags, etc.
More to follow.
