This is the second race in the 2015 Coughlin Chevrolet Championship Series.
This race takes place in Glacier Ridge Metro Park, a scenic venue in the Columbus Metro Parks system. Participants will have the opportunity to run for one of a number of registered charities while enjoying a great flat and fast course that winds through woods and prairies.
Charity captains interested in having their registered charitable or non-profit organization participate in the Stingray 5K should contact Andy Harris at the Columbus Running Company ([email protected]) for more details.
Presented by Coughlin Chevrolet of Pataskala and the Columbus Running Company Charity Fund, we are gathering the generous and charitable spirit of central Ohio and putting on a unique 5K that will bring many local charities together for one big event.
How does the charitable side of this event work?
Local charities and non-profits will work with the Stingray 5K team to get their organization signed up. Once they’re registered, the organization’s name will be available for participants to choose when registering. All proceeds (race profits after expenses) from the event will be going to the registered organizations. When participants select a charity during the registration process, 100% of the proceeds from their registration fee will go toward the charity of their choice. If a participant does not select a specific charity from the list, their proceeds will be distributed evenly among all registered charities.
Do I have to select a charity to run for?
If there is no charity from the list that sparks your interest, you’re still more than welcome to come out and participate. This will be a great event for all!
Where do the proceeds go?
If you register under a charity, at least $10 from your registration goes to the charity of your choice. The more profitable the event, the more money going to charity. If you don’t choose a charity, the $10+ from your registration will be divided equally among all participating charities.
Please contact the race director with any questions you may have. Charity spots are limited.
