So nice, let’s do it twice! The GRR “Run Your Mile” event is back!
May 9th, 2021 is #RunYourMile Day, celebrating the 67th anniversary of Sir Roger Bannister’s historic achievement of being the first human to break the 4 minute mile barrier on May 6, 1954. We want to bring #RunYourMile to Glastonbury and create an opportunity to give back to our local community!
Many local establishments depend on consumers to visit them in person as a major portion of their income and sustainability. As COVID-19 has affected all of us over the past year, we want to help our fantastic local businesses and hope that you’ll join us by signing up for a unique virtual event.
It’s simple. Sign up. Run a Mile. WIN!
Each participant who completes a mile before May 9th will be GUARANTEED a gift card to a “surprise” local establishment that has been supportive of GRR and as a way to help support them.
100% of the race entry funds collected will be used to buy gift cards to various local establishments who could use a little love to get through tough times. The gift cards will be redistributed back out to all of those who participate. Gift cards will range in value, with a minimum of $5 and a maximum of up to $100!
The rules are simple:
-Each participant will track their own race (you can run, walk, run/walk!).
-Submit your final result via the Google form – sent to you upon registration – via a photo of your smartwatch, phone app, or even a picture of your treadmill.
-On Thursday May 13th, we will be hosting an awards happy hour night to celebrate together via Zoom and announce our winners of prizes.
-All participants will be notified of their prize by Monday May 17th.
BUT WAIT THERE’S MORE!!!!
