WANT TO RACE ON ROAD ATLANTA?
The 2nd annual Run Road Atlanta is on! Saturday, January 19th, 2013 beginning at 9 am runners will hit the track to participate in another Run Road Atlanta. That's right hit the track! The race takes place on the Road Atlanta track. The distances are 10K, 5K and a 1K fun run. At this event runners will fuel before and after at the Pit-Stop (just like race cars). The Pit-Stop is the event's race expo and loaded with fuel, fitness, and fun for everyone.
Some of what's new this year: a team competition. The team with the #1 best team name or #2 best costume or #3 most participants or #4 fastest times will be recognized. The race awards are new and fit the fueling theme. Race shirts are now long-sleeved tech shirts. Last but not least not just the 10K but the 5K will be 100% certified thanks to 100% Chiropractic at the Mall of Georgia.
Again this year, we'll have HOT chicken noodle soup from Papa Jacks, more fantastic door prizes, the same reliable timing by Runner's Fit, the great volunteers and the same cause.
World Language Academy (WLA) is the beneficiary. WLA is one of Hall County's chartered public schools. The school's charter is language arts and the students are taught by total immersion Spanish and some Mandarin Chinese. Most grade levels spend 70% of their day learning in Spanish. It's a school where many children from diverse backgrounds come together to learn and become literate in multiple languages. World Language Academy is located down the road from this premiere racing venue, Road Atlanta, which donated the track for Run Road Atlanta. Hall County School System has made a formal commitment to increase the health and fitness of their students. Run Road Atlanta will compliment Hall County's efforts.
The students from World Language Academy have more to gain than fitness alone, the school's PTO is raising money for a Leveled Language Library that will provide multi-lingual books for each classroom. The bill for that will be $40,000, so large successful fundraisers will help WLA reach their goal. Last year Run Road Atlanta raised $8,000 for these books.
Run Road Atlanta is open to runners and walkers alike with the hope that the venue and cause will attract many runners, parents, students and racing fans. Race times are 9am - 10K, 10:30 am - 5K, and 11:30 am - 1K Fun Run. Registration is open now and will continue through race day, Saturday, January 19th, 2013. Registration is available on the school website www.hallco.org/wla or at Active.com. Questions? Contact April Brass at firstname.lastname@example.org .
