WHAT DO I WEAR?
It's the Pajama Dash, so, gee, I don't know... maybe PAJAMAS?! That's right, folks. This 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
• Kroc Center day pass - You're already awake. Why not go for a swim?
• Supervised child care - Pricing & details below.
• 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 great local businesses!
• Pancakes, bagels, fruit, coffee, hot cocoa & Gatorade
• Race photography
• YouTube video of you crossing the finish line - Share it with your friends! Be famous!
BUT WAIT... THERE'S MORE!
We can provide child care during the race for kiddos aged 3 months–11 years for just $6 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.)
JAMMIE JOG KIDS' FUN RUN
The Jammie Jog is a short-distance fun run for youngsters (ages 12 & under) who aren't quite ready to tackle the full 5K course. The entry fee is just $5, but you can save that hard-earned allowance money and register for FREE if one of your parents has paid to run the 5K course! Kids will get a Kroc Center water bottle and guest pass to return to the Kroc Center for another visit.
WHERE DO I SIGN??
Click HERE to register online, or you can sign up the good ol' fashioned way on a registration form. Procrastinators (you know who you are) 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, March 27 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 AM in the Kroc Center gymnasium.
WANNA HELP US OUT?
Volunteers are a super important part of the Pajama Dash. 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 and is part of the Pure Michigan FITness Series. Runners are eligible for the 2015 Mackinac Bridge Labor Day Run lottery.
