Join us for the Clovis Memorial Run to be held May 26, 2012. The event is to honor and support our senior citizens, veterans and active military on Memorial Weekend. We hope you will join us to Honor our Legacy of the senior citizens and veterans in our community. This is a non-competitive race for all athletic abilities and ages. The event will be held rain or shine.
The event includes a 5K (3.1 miles) run or walk, a 2-mile walk, a 1/2 mile kid's run, and a 1/2 mile S.A.F.E. Senior Walk & Roll. Your registration includes a t-shirt, pancake breakfast ticket, goodie bag, one raffle ticket (additional tickets available for $1.00) and a participant ribbon.
The 5K or 2-mile registration is $25 until May 20. The Kid's Run or SAFE Senior Walk and Roll is $15 until May 20. Veterans and active military may participate for free but must register in order to get their shirt and other goodies.
Early bird registration is available through May 20. No mail in registrations after May 20 - in person at the Senior Center or on-line only. From May 21-26 the cost per runner increases $5.00 per person for each event listed above except for active military and veterans which remains free. Shirt sizes and quantities are not guaranteed for registrations after May 20, 2012.
Proceeds from the event go to the Clovis Senior Center to help create a laptop computer lab. Our seniors are learning new ways to communicate with the next generation and desire to stay tech savvy.
In conjunction with the races, a resource fair will be held in Memorial Park adjacent to the Senior Center. Vendors and information for seniors, veterans and their families will be available. A pancake breakfast will be served inside the neighboring Veteran's Memorial Building. Each participant will receive a breakfast ticket and additional tickets for family and friends can be purchased for $4.00 each. Some additional shirts (they're nice ones!) are available for $10.00 each.
