October 20

 7 more weeks until the race!
I have received a few more registrations, which is always exciting.

Please register early.  Every year we order extra shirts and every year we run out.  It is very difficult to know how many extra to order.  If you register by November 20th I can guarantee a shirt.  They will be long sleeve cotton shirts.

We are honoring the JROTC - thank you Auburn High School for helping with the race, and the Marines, the founders of the Toys for Tots organization.  They were the inspiration for the design of the shirts.

Big Dog in Auburn started a couch to 5k program designed to get you ready for the 5k.  If you are interested in joining please contact Linda at

If you are not running or walking one of the races but would like to volunteer to help please contact me.

October 3rd

Sorry I have not been very active regarding the race.  So much going on locally!

Exciting news - Dr. Bob McAlindon is again one of our sponsors for the race.  He is so generous and a great doctor.  Thank you!!!

EarthFare will again be our water and fruit provider for the finish line.  Brooke Peace Harris is so kind to help, again, she is amazing.

We have been lucky enough to have lots of people offer to volunteer to help.  We should have plenty of helpers to make sure you stay on the course.

My husband teaches at the Vet school at Auburn University and the local SCAVMA (Student Chapter of the American Veterinary Medical Association, Auburn University) have offered to send us some volunteers.  We will also have Dr. Angarano and Lew on the course.

The JROTC from Auburn High school will also be helping on the course.

I am also hoping to have some marines on the course - this is not a sure thing yet.

Not confirmed yet, but I will try to have Aubie for the the 1 mile race.  Will keep you posted.

I should have the graphic up soon.
