Pre-race Kit Pick-Up: for pre- registrants will be at the Kingsville Historical Park
Thurs/Fri. June 20 & 21st 10-3pm.
Date : Sat, June 22, 2019
Registration & Kit Pick-Up Time: Lakeside Park Pavilion in Kingsville between 8:15am and 9:15 sharp! (no official time for late entries)
Start Times: 9:30am (Lads & Lassies Dash)
10am (5k walk/run/wheelchair)
The starting line is across Queen Street on NW side of Lakeside Park – on the Town’s Pumphouse property. This avoids crossing a road right at the start.
The finish line is at the southernmost end of Division St – on the pathway beside the lake.
Charity Details: It’s our hope that, by enlisting volunteers and through registering enough participants, we will be able to cover our costs and also make a contribution to two local charities doing good work for our community. In this regard, proceeds will be given to the Neighbourhood Charitable Alliance and the Kingsville Historical Park Museum – both of which are an excellent fit.
$10 from each 5k registration fee ($5 from 12 yrs and under) goes directly to support our charities. Each registration helps us provide more dollars to those two very worthy local charities.
Volunteers NEEDED: Our ability to make those contributions is greatly impacted by our costs. Therefore, any assistance that we are able to receive to help off-set our costs would be of great assistance to help achieve these objectives and to ensure that we can afford to put on an excellent fun-packed family event! Please contact Kimberly DeYong firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to volunteer.
Sponsorship Opportunities: Any sponsorship contributions towards off-setting our costs would be greatly appreciated and help make a difference. We will gladly keep you informed regarding our progress (should you wish) and will be recognizing our sponsors in our promotions and event information. Please contact Tom if you’d like to discuss about becoming a Sponsor or donating a Door Prize.
Thank you to our current sponsors who have generously offered to sponsor the event & provide door prizes!
