34 Years! Wow how time flies! We are proud to continue with The Bank of Fincastle Fall 5K and 10K Run this year as a VIRTUAL Race. Due to social distancing guidelines and our concern for the safety of our community and the many staff, volunteers and the students and families who participate in our race, we have decided to hold the event virtually this year. Of course we are disappointed not to be able to continue with our tradition of running together, however we hope this year is just a small bump in the road.
We welcome The Botetourt Rotary Club who will join us this year as a co-coordinator/sponsor of the race. We are excited to get more businesses involved in the race this year as well. We will have additional t-shirt sponsorships available for your logo to appear on the back of our shirt. You may also sponsor one of our Virtual Awards. CLICK HERE TO REQUEST SPONSORSHIP INFORMATION!
Where do the proceeds from the race go? In past years due to the cost of the shirts, trophies, timing, advertising, etc., the event has been less than break even, and the Bank has been covering extra expenses, and as our title event, we have been proud to do. The Bank of Fincastle awards $2000 in scholarships to students from James River and Lord Botetourt. This year, we are hoping to add sponsorships to the event so that more proceeds will be available to go to the Botetourt Rotary and the charities they choose. We have always kept our entry fees lower than most all races so that students and families can afford to participate. We will do the same this year.
Will we get swag? Yes! You will receive a custom long sleeve t-shirt and a participant ribbon. Everyone who registers BY SEPTEMBER 18 IS GUARANTEED THE SIZE SHIRT YOU REQUEST. We will send out a race bib that you can print (OR WILL WE USE THE ONES WE HAVE ON HAND?) and a Facebook profile picture frame. Trophies will still be presented to the schools with the greatest number of participants and the greatest percentage of student's participating.
Where to we pick up our swag? You may pick it up at our Daleville Branch on Monday, September 28 and Tuesday, September 29 between 4 and 7. A tent will be set up outside or we may be set up inside the branch, depending on the state of the pandemic at that time. Be sure, when you register, to allow emails from our race.
What are the race details? You can complete your Bank of Fincastle VIRTUAL Fall Run at ANY TIME and ANY PLACE between Thursday, October 1 at 9am and Saturday, October 17 at 5pm. We encourage you to choose a safe place to run.
Where do we submit our results? Instructions will be sent out to all registered participants on how to submit your results. Results can be submitted anytime between October 1, 2020 at 9am and October, 17, 2020 at 5pm.
