NEW THIS YEAR we have added a "virtual" 5km and half marathon for those of you who can't make it here but still want to be a part of this amazing event! Other tan that there won't be any major changes to the event this year. We are gonna have some special surprises for our sweet 16 run! The 1km "Tot Trot" was a HUGE hit so that will happen again this year. And, we will keep all the incentives that could mean BIG savings for you! Incentives like...
- Discounts for spreading the word on Facebook! Click the special link from the Race Roster registration site to share the event on facebook. Every person that uses your link to register means you get $5 back up to the full cost of your registration, which means you can run for FREE!!!
- Signing up in groups of 5 or more will get you a discount (must all register at the same time)
- And, if you collect $200 in pledges, we refund your registration and you run for FREE!!! So all you have to do is hit up 10 friends for $20 (that goes to local charities) and YOU run for FREE!!! Sweet deal!!!
This years charity recipients will again be the Blenheim Youth Center and The Word Of Life Soup Kitchen and again we are hoping to have a little extra to spread around as well! Both of these charities are a major part of our community and do amazing things for our friends and neighbors in Chatham Kent.
Come and be a part of this life changing event and see why SO many people love to Trot To The Beach and have made it CK's most popular and longnst running 1/2 marathon and 5km event!!!
