Third Annual Embrace Our Green Space Race and we will be much obliged if you would forward this information along to your members via your email lists.
As in the past events, we will again have a variety of
events: 2K walk for kids and seniors, 5K run/walk, 10K run, 10K skate and
20K bike ride. There are police escorts and traffic control at major
intersections on the 10K and 20K courses. All event courses wind through
neighborhood streets and sidewalks with lots of turns. All events are
non-competitive. On-site registration begins at 9AM on Saturday, March 23,
2013 in parking lot at Oak Grove United Methodist Church. Post race snacks donated by local restaurants.
Online registration will be available at <http://www.active. com>
www.active.com. Our event will be listed in early January under 'Embrace
Our Green Space Race'. Those who sign up by the week before the event will
get tee shirts. This year we are also encouraging kids under 12 to
participate without their parents and get some fresh air and exercise by
having a special entrance fee for them of $10 (includes a tee shirt if
registered a week before the event). A regular adult entry fee is $20, and
a family entry fee is $50.
Atlanta Park Pride will again collect and distribute the funds. All
proceeds above the cost of the event will be divided equally among the
'friends of' groups that help maintain 4 neighborhood parks: Kittredge, Mary
Scott, Clyde Shepherd and the new park on Lavista Road that sits behind the
Oak Grove shopping center and Coralwood School. If you haven't visited some of these parks, check them out!
