Please volunteer or run at W&OD 10k!

June 20, 2011

IMPORTANT: Volunteers and Participants Needed!!

WRC has agreed to co-sponsor the “Friends of the W&OD 10K” race to be held Saturday evening (6:30), July 30, in Vienna Va.

The race itself will take place on the W&OD trail. Web site is http://www.mc-coop.org/home.aspx. As co-sponsors, WRC members receive a $10 discount on registration ($20 vs. $30). Also, for every two volunteers, WRC receives one free entry. WRC will also be featured on the race T-shirt.

This race supports not only the W&OD, which all of us use and value highly, but 14 other excellent charities (see website).

WRC has agreed to provide a variety of volunteers, with volunteer shifts typically lasting four hours. Please take advantage of this opportunity to support our club and support this worthy cause. Volunteers will receive both a free race T-shirt as well as a WRC T-shirt to proudly wear (the latter) while volunteering at the event. Great visibility for our club!

If you do not volunteer, please register to run this race. We would like to maximize our club’s presence at this event!

How to participate (running or volunteering):

No later than 25 June 2011:

1. Email WRC president John Kendra (jrkinva@gmail.com), letting him know whether you plan to volunteer, run, or both.
2. Free entries (based on # of volunteers) will then be distributed on a first-come, first-served basis.
3. Runners not covered by the free entries will be notified that they should register on their own.

Thanks everyone, I look forward to seeing you all there on July 30!

WRC President
