The 4th Annual Rabbit Race 5K and 1/2 Mile Bunny Hop will be held on Saturday, March 30th. We are keeping the tradition of hosting the race the Saturday before Easter. Registration will be from 7:00 a.m. to 8:45 a.m. with the 5K starting at 9:00 a.m., Bunny Hop at 10:00 a.m. and awards at 11:00 a.m. The start and finish will be at the Bay County Courthouse.
The 5K race will be $20 until March 15th, after that the price will increase to $25. The Bunny Hop is $10 until March 15th and $15 after. We will have packet pick-up on Friday, March 29th at the Junior League Office from 11:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. and 4:00 - 6:00 p.m. We will also offer late registration at that time and on race day. Chip timing will be provided by Runners Edge.
All children under 12 will receive a finisher';s medal. Bunny Hop children will also get a special prize at the end of the race. T-shirts will be provided to the first 300 registrants. We will also have prizes for age groups and overall awards.
If you don';t want to run or walk, we are also looking for volunteers. We need folks to help pack packets before the race, help with the packet pick-up and also on race day. In addition to our committee, we are looking for about 100 volunteers over the course of the 3 different days with more than half of those needed on race day following the guidelines from race director';s guides the committee has reviewed. This counts as a league-wide event and it is a new member requirement. To sign-up go to our volunteer spot page at http://vols.pt/UoiYop.
Of course we couldn';t do any of this without our wonderful sponsors. We thank you all so much for supporting Junior League of Panama City';s 5K race series.,
