Race Day registration will begin at 8:30 a.m. at which time participants will be able to pick up their numbers and t-shirts.

The 1K event will start at 9:30 a.m. to be followed by the 5K at approximately 10:00 a.m. The race route will be available on our websites by July, 15, 2012.
Free childcare will be provided on site beginning at 9:30 a.m. if required for parents of small children wishing to participate in the 5K. All participants are invited to join us after the 5k portion of the day for refreshments and several draws for some amazing prizes. (Please note: You must be present to win).
We are currently looking for corporate or private sponsors to help us to off some of the costs of event. Please contact Judy or Emily if you are about to assist us with a donation in kind or in cash. It would be greatly appreciated. All sponsors will be mentioned in a newsletter following the race day as well as their corporate name and logos printed on the back of the runner’s t-shirts. Some items we are looking for include water, plates, napkins, food, prizes, give–a-ways for all participants, etc.
It is going to take several volunteers to make this day a success. So if the race it’s self is not your thing, you can still be a part of the day by helping us out. Here are just a few of the positions we have to fill:
Food preparation and distribution
Please contact Claudia at email@example.com if you would like to volunteer in any way for our race. We are pleased to be able to bring you this event that is open to everyone from 1-99 at any fitness level and ability from the avid runners in the neighbourhood to the beginners that are just starting out or wanted to try something new. If you are a couple that walks daily or the group of gals that head out the door regularly for some social walks, we hope to see you all there too. Kids can challenge their friends, siblings or even Mom and Dad (possibly even Grandma and Grandpa). This is an excellent opportunity to get your children introduced to running and regular exercising by encouraging them to follow your example of tying up a pair of running shoes and heading out the door. Our hope is to see as many people out participating and enjoying a morning of fun family fitness with friends and neighbours. As with all of the ENA events we will be going ahead rain or shine. Although the event is primarily targeted to the residents of Eastbridge, everyone is welcome to enter regardless if they live within the neighbourhood or not. This run is something that we hope to be able to include on our list of yearly events that we are proud to offer to our truly exceptional and unique community. So why not enter today.
