Virtual Race: 2nd Annual Rock Your Socks 10K/5K

As you know, I am running the NYC Marathon this November with Grassroot Soccer. Up until now, my fundraising efforts have been a huge success, thanks in no small part to many of you. I truly appreciate everyone who has helped me reach my goals.

So, as my way of saying thank you (and, I won't lie, to drum up some more donations), I am hosting the 2nd Annual Rock Your Socks Virtual Race (the inaugural race was a 10K/Half Marathon last May). This year's event will consist of a 5K and a 10K division and the only requirement for entry is that you make a contribution of any size to my fundraising HERE. (Note: If you already donated, you do NOT need to make another donation. But, feel free to!)

Want to "register"? Here are the details:

2nd Annual Rock Your Socks Virtual 5k and 10K

WHEN: Anytime between Monday, September 12th and Sunday, September 25th

DISTANCE: 5K or 10K

COST: A donation of any size to my NYC Marathon Fundraising HERE

WHAT YOU SHOULD DO: Comment on this post to let me know you are in! Please include your name, race distance and blog address (if applicable). And don't forget to invite all your friends to join in.

Then, some time between the 12th and 25th, pick your course and run your race (knee high socks optional). When you are done email me at racingwithbabes (at) yahoo (dot) com with a link to your race report and your finish time.

AWARDS: Four (4) prizes will be awarded.
  • First place finishers in both the 5K and 10K divisions will win 6 GUs (4 Jet Blackberry, 2 Lemon Sublime), 2 packages of Honey Stingers and 1 Clif Bar
  • One randomly drawn racer will win a $100 gift certificate to Everyday Endurance
  • One randomly drawn racer will win a Tommie Copper prize pack (Compression Shirt, Calf Sleeves and Hat - winner chooses sizes)
Sounds like fun, doesn't it? So, are you in?

I'm in for the 10K... but do you know if the race director would let me change divisions if I change my mind and do the 5K instead? Just curious.

I'm in! I am not aiming for a PR, but I plan on pacing A to her a PR... especially since this will be her first timed race (Disney races ARE just for fun). So this Sunday we are running a 5K together! Giraffy raves about the Tommie Chopper sleeves, hope I win!

I'm in for the 5K - doubt I'll be in the lead, there are some FAST runners here - but it's about the experience, darn it!
