Patrick4Life walk/run was held in the morning of Sunday June 13, 2010. It was a great day. Overcast with a bit of a breeze to keep the participants cool. I don't have any firm numbers but there were over 900 participants registered. This is a fun event consisting of a 1//2 marathon (21.1K) a 10K, 5K and 2K event. The 1/2 marathon left the gate at 0830. They run out to Cranberry Rd and the Kate Pace Way and turn around. The 1st runner was back about 0925. The 5K & 10K started at 0815 and the 2K started at 0930. The last runner was in at 1120. There was burgers, wraps and salad at the finish. Unfortunately Howard couldn't join us for a snack. Howard.. Give our best to Joan and tell her to take it easy and get better soon. We were cleaned up and headed home by noon. Thanks to Bruce VA3BDR at checkpoint 2, Gerry VA3YO at checkpoint 3, Doug VA3DLJ at checkpoint 4, Howard VE3GMG at the turn around on Cranberry Rd. Howard then got double dutied to checkpoint 1 for the returning tired runners. Bill VA3SPT kept us all in line. He was at the start during the set-up and then went around the course checking it out. Hopefully the pictures he took will get posted on the website. Thanks to Tim Silver who acted as my runner at the Start/Finish. Best of luck in your Australia enveavors Tim.
This is a great event for a great cause and we had lotsa fun.
