Today I want to announce three upcoming events that Accelerators can participate. These cost money and are all voluntary. All are described below with costs and web links. The Magis Miles is an event with many mile races for middle schoolers on up. The Big Heart 5K is a fundraiser in the memory of a member of an Accelerators family. The Summer Sunset races sponsored by the Fox River Trail Runners is a family event to raise money for college scholarships.The Magis Miles will be held Saturday June 4 at Saint Ignatius College Prep in Chicago. There are specific races for middle school girls and boys and certain high school races; anyone can run the open races and the night ends with some very fast races. Please let me know if you are interested. The cost per racer is $30 and spectator is $6 (there may be a processing charge). The link is magismiles.comThe Big Heart 5K will be Saturday June 11 at Geneva Middle School South (the race will include the Peck Farm loop). Proceeds will support cardiac screening for high school students. This race was started in memory of Kristoffer L suffered a cardiac death at age 22 while visiting relatives in Norway; his family started running with Accelerators a few years before. The screening has found a small problem for one Accelerator; a procedure was performed, and the athlete has continued to run for the high school. Please let me know if you are going to participate. The cost is $40+processing fee for the 5K and shirt; there is also a new race (and shirt) for $15+ for 2-6 years old called Tiny Hearts Kids Race. The link is bigheart5k.itsyourrace.comThe Fox River Trail Runners (FRTR) sponsor the Summer Sunset 5K & Youth Races to raise money for college scholarships. Many Accelerators have been recipients of these scholarships. In addition, FRTR sponsors the Accelerators and have been a great help. There are races for everyone: Toddler Trot of 100 meters for age 5 and under; Junior Jog of 400 meters for age 9 and under; Youth Mile for age 12 and under; and Summer Sunset 5K for age 99 and under. The costs for the races (+ possible processing fee) are respectively $5, $5, $15 and $30. During the registration process, there is an option to purchase a shirt. These races will Wednesday evening July 20 at Pottawatomie Park in St Charles. If you have questions of what event your child could do, please talk with me. If you intend to participate, please let me know. The link is foxrivertrailrunners.org/summer-sunset-5kSorry for the long post. If you have any questions, please ask. Coach Keith ... See MoreSee Less
