The 08085 Run/Walk/Sit: One mild-mannered zip code … with an event boasting four fantastic options! To kick off your 2018 Fun Day, join us for one or more of the inaugural 08085 Run possibilities. In zip code order, choose from:
1. A 0.8 Mile kids’ run/walk (1.29K) – Course along a flat, paved trail within Locke Avenue Park. Kids ages 5-12 will receive bibs with timing chips, tech T-shirts and finisher’s medals. Awards for age groups 5-6, 7-8, 9-10 11-12. Family discounts for 3 or more children from the same famiy. Adults welcome to register to join the kids and walk this event. Walkers receive a bib, tech T-shirt and finisher’s medal.
2. A 0K sit (approximately no miles) – Course along a comfortable chair of your choosing. All the stuff – bib, tech T-shirt, and medal – with little-to-none of the sweat!
3. An 8K run (4.96 miles) – Chip timed, mostly out-and-back course, mostly along High Hill Road but only featuring gentle, rolling hills less imposing than the road’s name suggests. Tech T-shirt, finisher’s medal, team discount for 5 – 8 runners who sign up at the same time. Overall 1st, 2nd, 3rd place male and female finishers and age group awards, as well as awards for 5th, 8th, 58th, and 85th place finishers.
4. A 5K run/walk (3.1 miles) – Chip timed, less-challenging course, only half on High Hill Road. Tech T-shirt, finisher’s medal, team discount for 5 – 8 runners who sign up at the same time. Overall 1st, 2nd, 3rd place male and female finishers and age group awards, as well as awards for 5th, 8th, 58th, and 85th place finishers.
Awards for most children participating in the .8 mile race from the same class, registrants celebrating a 5th, 8th, 58th, or 85th birthday on June 9, and most entertaining running outfit(s).
All profits will be shared by The Kiwanis Club of Greater Swedesboro and the Swedesboro Woolwich PTO for programs that benefit children.
