ALL early registrants will be guaranteed a t-shirt. October 1, 2019 is the deadline to register to be guaranteed a t-shirt. 5K RUN and 10K ROLL finishers will receive finisher medals. In addition to these, 5K RUN male and female age division winners will be recognized. The first place overall 5K RUN male and female winners will be given a special award. There will be candy and door prizes too! [At this time, only the 5K RUN will be chip-timed.]
Register online through runsignup.com or pickup registration packets at the following downtown Greenwood, AR businesses: Rowe Chiropractic and Acupuncture at 20 N Main Street or Van Der Watt Prosthetics and Orthotics at 11 N Main Street.
The goal of our event is to provide a new prosthetic or a piece of sport adaptive equipment for a deserving amputee who could not otherwise have one and to help our local non profit group Focus on Greenwood so that we can continue to help community members in need.
Pre-registered racers and metallic level sponsors are invited to a meet-and-greet dinner the night before the race at Bell Park Community Pavilion in Greenwood, AR where you will meet para-athletes and our recipient! You will have a chance to hear some amazing stories from some amazing people! We will have food and drinks for everyone at no additional cost. It will be a lot of fun and very inspiring! This will also be our early race packet/t-shirt pickup.
Costume Contest: be sure to come into The Edge building prior to the race! We will have a team member take your photo and while everyone is out walking, running and rolling the costume contest judges will decide on the winners for cutest, best overall, most creative and best duo. The winners will be announced and presented with prize money during the awards ceremony post-race. This is open to all participants (Run, Walk & Roll).
