Description

The Peyton Irwin Memorial Scholarship Fund is having its first annual fun run....a great race for an even greater cause!!    Come join us as we bring awareness to distracted driving. This is a FUN 5K your way - run or walk - just make it to the finish line.  The event is not scored and no awards will be distributed - BUT, everyone will get a T-shirt and goodie bag.  Be sure and stick around for the participant breakfast and raffle announcement.  **UPDATE:  We will be distributing FINISHER medals for those who cross the finish line!!  

All proceeds benefit the Peyton Irwin Memorial Scholarship Fund in their mission of educating on distracted driving and awarding students with scholarships.

 

ALL LEVELS AND ALL AGES ARE WELCOME!

 

Let me explain a little about our cause. On March 29, 2019, Peyton Irwin was travelling to San Antonio Texas to support her Alma Mater Drill Team at a State Competition. Unfortunately, she did not make it to that event because she, along with three other passengers in the vehicle, was killed by a distracted driver. The driver of the vehicle was distracted and did not apply his brakes until just .06 seconds before hitting them while travelling at approximately 60 miles per hour.  It is so important to educate people on the dangers of texting, social media, handling phones, and other distractions while driving a vehicle. Had he been paying attention, he could have seen them and slowed down, or swerved to miss them. We want to prevent this from happening to others.

SPECIAL INFORMATION

We have a VIRTUAL option available for those who live too far away to attend the live run OR for those who are not comfortable participating with a crowd at this time.  If you register for virtual option, and you are local, we ask that you pick up your race packet at the pre-race packet pick up on Friday before the race (see details below).  If you are not local, we will be happy to mail your race packet to you!  

GUARANTEE your t-shirt size availability by signing up for EARLY REGISTRATION before midnight 5/23/20! **You can continue to register after that date, but we cannot guarantee tshirt availability.  

You as a participant can also choose to start the run at your leisure as to avoid the larger crowd.  We ask that all registered participants please begin the run no later than 8:45 am.
