Happy Mother’s Day Weekend!
Runners and walkers we will see you TOMORROW Sunday morning at Das Brauhaus formerly known as the New England’s Ale House in Palm Harbor 3419 US-ALT. 19, Palm Harbor, FL 34683.
THIS IS OUR LAST RACE AT THIS VENUE!!! Bittersweet as the owners are moving on to new adventures and our next Palm Harbor venues are equally fun and ALREADY permitted!
TOMORROW is our only time to check in beginning as early as 8:15 a.m. with our 5K beginning from Das Brauhaus/Ale House at 9 a.m. Please park behind the building using DeSoto Blvd. or in the county grass property. DO NOT PARK ALONG ALT-19 and do not park in Nelson Construction or the Law Offices directly south of the Ale House as each have weekend employees. Parking on Alt 19 is dangerous and WILL result in a parking violation. No tickets!!! Hugs and happiness on race day always!
Since we are celebrating great Mom and those who have played the role of Mom in yo your life…tomorrow is the only race where you can get an additional WOW/MOM finisher’s medal with a $5 CASH donation to our teens at check in and t-shirt pick up.
Your registration includes the white technical RUN FLORIDA shirt but you also have the option of upgrading to any of the other colored shirts for a $5 donation to the teens. Please choose just one shirt (the one included in your paid online registration or an upgraded $5 shirt offered so that we have enough inventory to satisfy all the runners). I’ve loaded several options in for tomorrow’s selection as TEAM SHOKKA is working hard to earn money for their upcoming NATIONAL TOURNAMENT! Go Girls!!!
The run/walk will be electronically timed up to 59 minutes and your bib number assignment that is attached in this email and has been programmed into our timing system. Please wear your bib number with 4 pins attached to the shirt you will be finishing in so it is visible to our timers. Das Brauhaus will provide a post race snack at out after party and you’ll get a free Michelob Ultra for everyone over 21.
Attached in this email is your assigned bib number and your waiver of release. If you have access to a printer, please try your best to print and bring your signed waiver with your bib number written at the top to expedite the check in process. We will also have them on site.
Remain at the venue until we walk out to the start/finish line together as a group after the playing of the National Anthem. The course goes out and back heading north on the Pinellas trail from Oceanview to Valley Dr. without as much as a bend in the route. It is completely paved and stroller friendly. It is also open to trail goers so please limit ear buds to one ear only if you choose to wear them and please try to keep to the right throughout your 1.55 out and back 5K distance run or walk.
Times are recorded for all finishers who complete the 5K in under 59 minutes. Times are NEVER posted at the venue to maintain our less competitive but VERY fun crowd of participants. Times will be posted in finish order after the race later in the afternoon at www.727CanRace.com
If you are handed a POKER CHIP at the finish line bring it to the Ale House after your run and redeem it for your framed TOP FINISHER award as it means you finished the race in the top 10 males or top 10 females.
If you bring your phone please take plenty of pics as you can upload up to 30 at one time onto our Facebook page “Xanadu Race Management Photos” Friend us today
