We’ve heard you: You don’t want to miss out on our event in 2020! So we are holding our annual 6.6k (4.1-mile) run/walk as a virtual race, complete with our most popular swag items! Proceeds will benefit CORE of McLean, a nonprofit 501©(3) organization. Funds raised will be directed toward our continued work on the new park underneath our old decommissioned water tower, which is the usual location of the finish line of the run/walk and is featured in this year’s t-shirt design. In early June, we had plants and mulch installed in the park, with a focus on native plants that attract pollinators. Future plans include installing a roof structure within the supports of the water tower to create shade over the seating area below and having the tower creatively painted by a local artist.
You are invited to complete a 6.6k run/walk in the location of your choosing and submit your time, but this is optional. The registration fee includes a soft cotton t-shirt as well as a shot glass and a small bottle of Funks Grove Pure Maple Sirup for a DIY sirup shot opportunity! Got enough swag? You have the option of not receiving any or all these items (by selecting none or 0), but the cost of registration stays the same. Additional shirts and shot glasses may also be purchased for an additional charge. Items will be available for local pickup or can be shipped directly to you.
