Join your fellow underachievers for a day (actually more like 10 minutes) of glory and celebration to raise money for the 2018 413Heart Music & Arts Festival August 16 – 18.
The Inaugural Dalton 0.5k will be held at 11 am on July 21, 2018 along Main Street.
This will be very fun, tongue-in-cheek event that will lampoon the typical 5k.
Here are the details!
The um, “Run” will start at the driveway to the First Congregational Church. Conveniently, John Kelly has provided a beer tasting before the start of the race, so get there early. Yay beer! The formidable Kas Maroney will guide you through stretching exercises so that you will participate at your very best level.
The um, “Race”, will then amble westward along Main Street (exactly 0.5K) to the CRA lawn where you will finish in a blaze of glory.
We will then head to the Shire Brew Hous to relive the experience, brag to our friends, take selfies to post on social media “I DID IT!!! I’M A FINISHER!! LOOK AT ME!!!” Conveniently, SBH has offered all participants a free beer at the end of the race. Yay beer!
Goodies and Fun Stuff!
All finishers will receive a pretentious oval Euro-style 0.5k sticker that you can attach to your rear windshield to show everyone what a badass you are.
Coffee and donut station at the halfway point for carb-loading and energy
This will also be where the designated smoking area is.
Finish line photo ops
Individual and group costumes – cool sunglasses, cowboy hats, short shorts, spurs gear, pajamas, you name it.Come dressed for fun!
Medical staff (real off-duty nurses!)
The race is being sanctioned by SLACR, the Society for Lazy and Carefree Runners.
Awards Presentation at CCB
Much, much, much more (as we think of things.)
Don’t feel like running? Don’t think you can make it the full 546 yards? Then you should be a VIP.
For an additional $25, you don’t even have to run! How awesome is that?!
The official Dalton 0.5k shuttle service is provided by a pair of golf carts from Wahconah Country Club, sponsored by Currency Coffee. If you don’t want to walk over to the Breu Hous, we’ll shuttle you!
You still get the free beer at both locations, and the oval window sticker!
If you’re part of a team, sign up together and make your appearance a team effort.
Yes, we need them! There is a link at the top of the website for volunteer information and registration.
Please pass the word to your friends.
And we’ll gladly put your high schooler to work too!
