We could all use good news and not another cancellation or closure, the 2020 Centerpoint Half Marathon and 5K in Prattville is going to happen! How? Virtually!
Here’s a note from the event organizers describing the plan, “first and foremost, we love our racers, our sponsors and our ministry partners! The partnership we share makes a difference around the world! Right now, we know our partners stand in need, they have communicated that with us. We believe we have an exciting and unique opportunity to help them.
We will be continuing on with the Centerpoint Half, 5K, fun run, prayer walk and yes, even the phantom runner! You can be a vital part of helping these ministries thrive by participating in our virtual races.
We will be packing bags here with some extra goodies to help you in your race.
On Friday, April 3rd from 4:00-7:00 and Saturday, April 4th from 7:00-8:30, you can pick up your race bag, via our awesome drive thru service, at the YMCA on McQueen Smith. You don’t even have to leave your car!
Next, you run your distance. You can use our route, one of our suggested routes in your race bag or the route of your choice. You can run alone or with your training partners. Lots of freedom here!”
Once you complete your race, send your time in by email (address to be provided). Just complete your run between the original scheduled date of Saturday, April 4th and Saturday, April 11th. Then, there will be a watch party to announce winners in each category and award trophies! Plus, there will be door prize drawings.
It’s a chance for all of us to have something to look forward to and to have fun, while getting exercise, clearing our mind of all the stress, and supporting Centerpoint missions.
