Race Instructions for Race to Build 5k & 10k Trail Race

HABITAT_RUN_20189ai

Welcome Race Participants,

 

Thank you for supporting Habitat for Humanity of Williamson County and Williamson County Parks & Recreation by participating in the Race to Build 10k or 5k Trail Race on Sunday, March 4, 2018.  10K starts at 8:30am and 5K at 8:45am. The race is being put on by the Georgetown Running Club (GRC).

Volunteers still needed.  Click link to sign-up.  Some jobs allow you to still run.

Before getting into the details of the race, it is important that you understand that this is a trail race on rugged, natural trails.  These are not cinder trails that are in other areas of this park.  You will definitely encounter loose rocks, permanent rocks, dirt, leaves, sticks, tree branches, cactus as well as other natural obstacles and possibly wildlife.  The GRC and park have done our best to remove the high grass, but don’t let this fool you into thinking the trail is a well maintained, groomed trail.  Running strollers will not be allowed on the 10k Course because the trail is not wide enough in spots or suitable for them.  Running strollers are allowed but not recommended on the 5k Course.  This is for the safety of not only the person in the stroller but those on the course.  Dogs are also not allowed during the race.  Course maps available online at www.NoExcusesRunning.com.

 

Start Times, Bibs, & Chip Timing – 10k (8:30am) & 5k (8:45am)

The 10K will start at 8:30am followed by the 5K at 8:45amEspecially 10k racers, please don’t arrive late to the starting line because we cannot allow to start late because we have to close off the 10k turn before the 5k runners get there. Bibs should be worn on the FRONT.  This will be a chip timed event this year.  There will be on-site results as well as live results on-line provided by Event Data Solutions.

 

Weather Conditions – Rain or Shine

The race will happen rain or shine.  It is a trail race, so the more mud, the better.  Only lightning will postpone or cause cancellation of the event.  If you want to stay up to date on announcements, then join the Race to Build 5K & 10K Trail Race Facebook event or check the No Excuses Running website at www.NoExcusesRunning.com

 

Parking – 3005 County Road 175, Leander, TX

Restrooms

There will be portable toilets located in the disc golf parking lot within 100m from the start/finish line.  If you prefer indoor toilets, they are located at the stadium (400m from the start/finish line), tennis courts (700m away), and softball fields (800m away).  Plan accordingly.

 

Shirt Guarantee – register by 2/18

Guaranteed shirt for entries received by 2/18, after that while supplies last.  If you registered on 2/19 or later then come to packet pick-up early to improve your chances of getting a shirt in your desired size.  You must also pick up your shirt at packet pick-up.  No shirts will be held after the event.

1 Mile Walk CourseThe 1 mile walk is an out-and-back from 7th & Main up Main St, left turn on 11th St, left turn on Church St and turnaround before 7th St. Very important that you line up on the left side of the Main St at the starting line as you will be turning left on 11th St as the 5 Mile runners turn right on 11th St.  As you go north on Church St please stay to your right and at the turnaround stay to the left back up to 11th St.  Right on 11th St and then right on Main St and the final 4 blocks to the finish.

Parking – Carpooling is highly encouraged

VERY critical, do not park on Main St (between 7th & 11th Streets), Church St (between 4th & 10th Streets), or the parking lot between Main, Church, 9th, and 10th Streets).  There are plenty of free city parking lots and parking spots on various streets, especially West of Austin Ave.  See the link at ww.NoExcusesRunning.com for downtown Georgetown for best place to park and map to Georgetown.  Remember to only park in legal spots.  Careful crossing Austin Ave to get to the Georgetown square.

Even if you have a guaranteed shirt, it is very helpful to have them picked up on Wed because it will be very crowded on race morning.

Race Bib & Timing

Race bibs should be worn on the front of every participant.  It is crucial for distributing awards.  You will notice they are color coded and this helps us with the awards.

We have decided to make this an untimed event.  However, Data Event Solutions has donated a digital timing clock that will be at the finish.  By not paying for a timing company we will be able to provide hot meals to an adult for an entire year.  Thank you for your understanding.

Texas Strong t-shirt sales

Texas Strong

As a result of Hurricane Harvey there have been people reaching out to me to put on a race to raise money for those that need it. When I put on the Japan Relief 5k at the request of the Stoney Point High School seniors I learned firsthand that throwing together a race doesn’t always help in a big way. Plus September is already a very busy race time. Therefore, starting at the September Vern’s No Frills 5k, we will sell Texas Strong t-shirts for $15 and $10 will go to the Rebuild Texas Fund. You probably heard that the goal is to raise $100 million with $36 million already from the Michael and Susan Dell foundation. I will have shirts with me through October’s Vern’s No Frills 5k and working on a way to do sales online. There is the possibility of going with tech shirts, but I need to see how this goes with the cotton ones. Appreciate your help at spreading the word. Remember there are a lot of Texas cities besides Houston that need help.

You can also pay for shirts using the Link to Paypal.
