Less than 3 weeks!

We have less than 3 weeks to go until race day!  We have picked up several business sponsors this month!  Check out our sponsor page or the links to these awesome businesses on the right hand side.
As always we are still looking for racers and walkers!  The course is a loop starting at the Bluffton H.S. stadium. Runners will then head down Stogdill Rd to the Greenway before heading up Wayne St and back around to the stadium. There will be a water station at the halfway point in the race as well as water and refreshments afterwards.

Invite your friends and join us for a fun morning!  We look forward to seeing you there and thanks for helping us with such a great cause!

Runners and Walkers wanted!

The race is just over 1 month away, have you signed up yet? 

The registrations have started to trickle in, both online and mailed in!  But we are still looking for more people to participate!  You don't have to run fast, or even run at all. Come walk with us to support the repairs for the River Greenway. Registration costs $20 until May 10th if you want to mail it in, and until May 15th online. This will guarantee you a Gallop for the Greenway tee shirt.  Registrations on race day will be $25.  We will do our best to get you a tee, but it's not guaranteed.

A link for online registration can be found on the right hand side of this blog. For a paper registration you can email us at tri.k.5k.run@gmail.com or pick one up at the Bluffton Parks Department.

We look forward to seeing you Saturday, May 17th!
