Join us for the Fourth Annual Alvey/Gravely Family Fun Run and 5K! Students nominated and then voted on the charity for which we are running - they selected "Friends of Homeless Animals", a local no-kill animal shelter for dogs and cats! Please "Run for Animals" while enjoying some fun family time!
From US 15, turn onto Waverly Farm Drive. Gravely Elementary will be on your right hand side after about .5 mile!
Please stay for the award ceremony after the race! All Fun Run participants will receive a ribbon for finishing. Awards will only be given out to participants in the 5K race. The top three (3) finishers of EACH GENDER in each grade category are given an award. And to encourage families to run together, we have 4 Family Fun Categories - Mom/Child (under 12), Dad/Child (under 12), Sibling/Sibling (under 12), and Family (Unit of 4 or more, 12 yrs. old and younger).
You will be answering fewer questions this year with your online registration! That's because we will be coding all 5K participants the day before the race in person during package pickup. Our categories are grades- K-1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6-8, 9-12. We want families running together so if you enter a Family Fun category, your child can still win their grade as well! More instructions and details to follow.
If you are registering during the last week before the race, you MUST attend the baggage pick-up on Friday, April 26th if you'd like shirt! We will be ordering extra tshirts after the race but you must be at the baggage pickup so we can confirm your shirt sizes and a child's classroom so the shirts can be delivered. They should arrive 2-3 weeks after the race. We ordered 200 extra shirts on our registration deadline but have had more than 200 extra people already register since that point.
Bag Pick-Up will be held at Gravely Elementary on Friday, April 26th from 4 PM - 7 PM in the cafeteria. It is very important for you to pick up your bag on Friday so that we can make sure you are put in the right category for the 5K race awards AND to ensure that we have the correct tshirt sizes if you were a late registrant.
The Alvey/Gravely Family Fun Run and 5K race committee is comprised of students and families from Alvey Elementary and Gravely Elementary Schools, both located in Haymarket, VA, just 1.5 miles from each other, making it the perfect 5K race! Participants will begin at Gravely Elementary and run toward Alvey, cross the street in front of Alvey Elementary and run back to Gravely! Strollers are welcome, no pets please. Runners will have staggered start times. We will have music and prizes at the end of the race! Please join us for a morning of fun, while raising money for the Friends of Homeless Animals!! Registrations AFTER Monday, April 8, 2013 are not guaranteed a T-Shirt! Register TODAY!!
