5th Annual Hasty Half Marathon
Date: Sunday, 06 of October of 2013 10h00
Local: Sandy Beach
Juneau runners and friends - Mark your calendars for the 5th annual Hasty Half Marathon & 5K Fun Run and 1 mile Walk on Sunday, October 6th!
There is not a registration fee, but we do ask for donations.
This year we have chosen to raise money on behalf of the Juneau High School running clubs, which have faced huge budget cuts. We'd like to promote running within the community of Juneau and show support for our high school runners during a time of spending shortfalls.
If you'd like to make a donation, but don't plan to attend, please contact Shannon Hasty at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Meet at Sandy Beach for all events.
Events: Half Marathon, 5K, 1 Mile Walk
We will have a pre-registration form up online within the next week and will send an alert when this becomes available. Also, race day registration will open on Oct 6th at Sandy Beach (meeting location for the event) at 8:00 am. Runners are asked to be at Sandy Beach by 9:00 am and will be shuttled to the start, near Outer Point. The run begins at 10:00 am.
This is a scenic, fun run along the Douglas Hwy, which is rolling terrain, from Outer Point to Sandy Beach. Support stations will be set up at approximately miles 3, 5, 7, 9 and 11 and will have water, gatorade and cliff shot energy gels on hand. You may want to bring your own energy gels if this is not your preference.
5K / 1 Mile:
Registration will open on Oct 6th at Sandy Beach (meeting location for the events) at 10:00 am. Runners/Walkers are asked to check in by 11:00 for an 11:30 start. Both events will begin and end at Sandy Beach.
We're all trained up for this after a beautiful summer so let's keep our running energy up for a couple more weeks and rally for the high school runners!
These are not officially timed, so if you'd like your time, please bring a watch.
If you are interested in participating but do not wish to run, please let us know as we are looking for volunteers for support stations and beach assistance.
Plan to join us for a fire and snacks at Sandy Beach afterward.
Anyone is welcome to join! Please invite friends.
Hope to see you Oct 6th!
