Greetings b STRONG runners and walkers! The big day is almost here! Here is a brief run-down of important race day information.
The b STRONG 5K start time is at 8:00am EDT; the 1 Mile Walk / Family Fun Run starts at 9:00am EDT, taking place at Bremen High School, in Bremen, Indiana.
Packet pickup times are Friday 4:00-7:00pm, and Saturday 6:00-7:30am. Race day registration is allowed at Packet Pickup, but shirts are not available for registrations received after July 15. Packet Pickup is in the Bremen High School parking lot on Grant Street. See map. http://www.bstrong316.org/course-map/
Primary race parking is in the Bremen Public Schools parking lot off Marshall Street. See map. http://www.bstrong316.org/course-map/
Access to the lot will be limited once the race course is closed for the 5K. Please keep this in mind if you are coming in for the 1 mile Fun Run only. Even if no one in your family is running the 5K, consider arriving by 7:45 so you can park easily, and then enjoy the party atmosphere and time cheering for the runners of the first race! If you arrive after 8:00am, you will be allowed to park; however, some waiting may result.
Bremen High School restrooms will be available for use during Saturday’s events.
Between the 1.5 and 2.0 mile mark of the 5K, participants will enjoy the
b STRONG Hill:
The base of the hill is where you turn left onto South Street. You will see a sign marking b STRONG Hill. This is where we encourage you to b STRONG! Nearing the 2.0 mile mark, you will crest the hill, where runners have the opportunity to “RING THE VICTORY BELL”. A runner’s quick tug of a cord will ring the bell to celebrate and encourage others to b STRONG as well!
We welcome parents to include the little ones in strollers out on your run or walk! Please just use caution and courtesy while pushing the stroller. Please allow courteous spacing between yourself and others in case of quick stops from the person in front of you.
Door Prizes & Awards
The first 50 children to cross the finish line during the 1 mile Fun Run will receive a medal upon their finish. Finisher medals in the 1 mile are reserved for youth only. Our b STRONG mission involves encouraging youth and little ones to stay active. These medals will be given at the finish line.
Door prize drawings for all b STRONG participants will be pulled after the completion of the 1 Mile Fun Run.
The 5K Awards Ceremony will take place following the running of the 1 Mile Fun Run, as soon as 5K race results are tabulated.
We are so thankful for all of you, and are praying for a safe and enjoyable day! ~ The b STRONG committee
