What should you do when you finish the Stockade-athon with some gas in the tank?
Why not sign up for the Veterans Day Dash to benefit STRIDE Adaptive Sports and the Shen XC/Track Booster Club! Fuel up after the 15k (or relay) then get ready to run a fun and flat 5k on the Shenendehowa High School campus. The 5K is Monday, November 12, 2018 at 10 a.m. There will be unique awards, refreshments, chip timing and more!
There are kids races (.5 and 1 mile on the track) at 9 a.m.
We honor veterans in a ceremony followed by a blast of the cannon to start the 5k. Top 3 men and women as well as top three male and female veterans will go home with custom director chairs from Telescope Casual. Awards this year are fleece buffs and the first 350 runners get long sleeve t-shirts. Veterans run for free - our way of saying thank you for your service.
Sign up at http://www.shenrunners.com. Day of registration is also available.
Many HMRRC members have helped put on and race the event over the years. We'd love to see you there this year.
