WHAT DO I WEAR?
It's the Pajama Dash Down Division, so, gee, I don't know... maybe PAJAMAS?! That's right, folks. This year's 5K is a pajama-themed race, so roll outta bed in your favorite PJ's and start running! Flannel pants, footie pajamas, bathrobes, curlers -- whatever will keep you warm and cozy as you're dashing through the snow. If you don't want to jog in your jammies, feel free to wear your standard running gear. We don't mind. Just remember: this is a family event, so keep it classy!
SO... WHAT DO I GET?
• Chip timing
• Winter stocking cap - Perfect for hiding bed-head.
• Kroc Center Day Pass - You're already awake. Why not go for a swim?!
• Supervised child care - Pricing & details below. (in other words, SCROLL DOWN!)
• Awards and gift certificates - For overall and age group winners... you know, the overachievers.
• Door prizes - For those running in pajamas, stick around after the race for your chance to win prizes from BSN Sports, Road ID, GR Children's Museum, Alger Bikes, Uccello's, Southland Auto Wash and more.
• Soup, snacks, bagels, fruit, coffee, hot cocoa & Pepsi products
• Race photography - Provided by Stellafly
BUT WAIT... THERE'S MORE!
We can provide child care during the race for kiddos aged 3 months–11 years for just $5 per child plus the promise that you'll name your next-born child after us. (What's that? Oh, our lawyers are telling us that we can't legally hold you to that last part.)
You can also order a "Team Kroc" shirt for just $15 (but we need your order by February 14, folks). It's a fancy-pants, short-sleeved New Balance® tech shirt available in men's & women's cuts. How cool is that??
miniDASH KIDS' FUN RUN
Contrary to popular belief, this is NOT a race where kids drive Mini Coopers. The miniDASH is a short-distance fun run for ages 12 & under. No need to spend that hard-earned allowance here - Registration is FREE! And if you want to send the kids back to school in style, pick up one of our 100% cotton miniDASH t-shirts, available for just $5.
WHERE DO I SIGN??
Click HERE to register online. Or you can sign up the good ol' fashioned way on a registration form. You procrastinators out there can also register at the Kroc Center until the morning of the race. Sorry folks, registrations are non-refundable and non-transferable.
Race packet pick-up will be on Friday, February 21 from 4 to 6:30 PM in the lobby of The Salvation Army Kroc Center. If you doze off and miss the pick-up, you can also pick up your packet on race day starting at 7:30 AM in the Kroc Center gymnasium.
WANNA HELP US OUT?
Volunteers are a super important part of the Pajama Dash Down Division. We need 40 cheerful, caffeine-charged people to help on race day. All you have to do is wear hot pink footie pajamas... Just kidding. Click here to learn more about volunteering at the race.
This race is endorsed by Governor’s Council on Physical Fitness Health & Sports. Runners are eligible for the 2014 Mackinac Bridge Run lottery.
