Signal Mountain Student Ministries (SM2) is hosting its second annual 5K or 1mile fun run/walk fundraiser on May 6, 2017. The race is called “Old Town Runaround” and the money raised will go directly to our 2017 summer trip finances, lowering the overall cost of these trips to our students.
This is an event for all people to participate in (runners, walkers, joggers, & people of all ages) We will have a 5K and 1-mile option to choose from with a fun closing program and celebration back at the church once everyone has finished the race. We are incredibly excited about this event and hope you’ll come out and join us in what we hope continues to grow into an annual event for the community as we work to raise money for our 2017 youth summer trips.
No interest in walking or running? Okay, then we’d love to have your support by volunteering on race day. There are a variety of needs (registration, snacks, water stops, street/traffic control, packet pick up, etc…) and we’d be delighted to have you serve with us. Sign up to volunteer and we’ll get in touch with you.
Note for parents & guardians: If you plan to run with a jogging stroller, we still need you to complete a registration form for your baby/toddler for liability purposes. You don’t have to pay for them, we will not record their time or give them a bib number, but must have a registration form (including the waiver & release) filled out and signed by a parent or guardian. You can turn the forms in on race day at our registration table.
