December 17, 2010-As Rudolph gears up for the holiday season, you should too! The official training for the 5/3 River Bank Run has begun! Haven’t started yet? Don’t get discouraged. I am speaking of only one 25K training program out of many options. The 10K training doesn’t begin until February 20 and the 5K training begins on March 20. There is plenty of time to prepare!
As many of you know, this year the Red Cross is a Charity Partner in the annual 5/3 River Bank Run, the largest 25K road race in the country. This means that not only can you run a renowned race, but you can opt to run to raise money for a good cause.
What in the world does “run for a charity” mean? Running for a charity means you pledge run. This means that you ask friends, family, co-workers and/or organizations for donations to support the Red Cross through your valiant running efforts. For example, you can run to raise money for the many programs the Red Cross offers such as disaster relief, which helps feed and clothe people after they have lost all their belongings in a fire.
When I register for the race do I automatically register to run for a charity (i.e. pledge run)? No. You must click “Run for the Red Cross” when asked during the registration process.
Not a runner? You can choose to walk the 5K to raise money for a charity!
