On April 20th, 2013, Glen Mar will be hosting its first 5K Run/Walk, benefitting the Howard County Food Bank. There will be opportunities for runners, walkers and family teams to navigate the course that will have participants cover the streets surrounding the church. Following the race, everyone will be welcome to enjoy coffee, tea, juice, bagels and muffins.
The Glen Mar 5K will be a great motivation for those of you looking to get in shape for Spring, for families looking for a fun activity to do together, or for runners looking to compete in a fun, friendly atmosphere, all for a good cause. Spread the word to your family, neighbors, friends and co-workers about this Spring';s Glen Mar 5K.
Participants may create or join a team. Teams must consist of at least 3 participants, but no more than 10. The top 3 times for each team member will count toward the team';s total time. However, all participants will have their run/walk times individually recorded.
Registration will be limited to the first 350 racers, and those who register before 2 April 2013 will be guaranteed an event t-shrit.
Participants are encouraged to bring non-perishable food items for donation to the Howard County Food Bank.
