Happy New Year! Our resolution was to open TKPK5K race registration on New Year's Day so that those of you who make it a priority "get off my bottom more" or "run more" have a worthy goal for your 2016 training! We wish you a happy and successful new year and hope you will tell your family, friends and neighbors that the TKPK5K is OPEN FOR REGISTRATION!!!! (I think I will now go for a run...)
We are just five months away from the 8th annual Takoma Park Safe Routes to School 5K Challenge. The TKPK5K Committee, led by Lucy Neher with representatives from our five TKPK5K schools has begun race preparations and is beginning to secure sponsorships from local businesses. Last year's race -- through a combination of sponsorships and registration fees -- raised $5,000 for each of our participating schools! These funds will support health, fitness and pedestrian safety activities planned by each school's PTA. If you know of businesses that would like to support this wonderful community event, please share the following sponsorship information with them. Thanks in advance for your assistance!
Online registration for the TKPK5K will be available until Thursday April 30 at midnight. Register here.
You can also register in person either this Saturday, May 2 from 2pm until 6pm at the Packet Pick Up, City Sports on Fenton Street in downtown Silver Spring. On race day, Sunday May 3, registration will begin at 7am inside the Takoma Park Community Center, 7500 Maple Avenue, Takoma Park. Cash and check ONLY.
For those of you picking up packets, you can do so Saturday at City Sports or Sunday as the Takoma Park Community Center. Times same as listed above.
