Completely agree with what's been said :) COME JOIN US and have some fun! The race is just the bonus, time with friends is the main attraction! Any distance, any pace, anyone.. and cheerleaders are ALWAYS appreciated!! emoticon

As I said in my message to the group - this is all about meeting other sparkers and having fun. Whether youi are standing on the side line cheering or running 30 miles - camaraderie and fun is what event is all about - the running part is optional lol.

It's kind of like a family reunion where new members are welcome and everyone WANTS to see each other! emoticon

If you are reading this and trying to decide wherther to do this! Come even if you are not going to run. It is great time to meet people spark (there are Spark people EVERY where at this ;-). But if you are thinking about running do it this is just REALLY nice race to kick off the year for ANY distance and ANY level of runner OR Walker.
This will be my second time, good people good time, for all!!!

You are awesome Jan - Like a Dad / Camp director rolled in one!
For any newbies, I can't think of a better group of people to "get your Spark on with"

Fellow Sparkers - in two weeks the event JASR is behind us and we are celebrating our victories. Here is a time line to keep in mind

- arrival to Cranberry Twp using your schedule. I get the sense the people who are staying in a hotel will be staying at the Hilton Garden Inn.
- Suggested departure from the hotel - 6:30 am
- Typically the hotel will have some kind of continental breakfast. If you are in need of something special on the course - I would encourage you to bring it yourself. The same goes for sports drinks. I don't see what they offer on the course.
- Event information (about 30 min drive from hotel - depending on how easy it is to find parking)
March 29, 2014
8:30 am start for 30K
8:40 am start for 5K, 8.1 and Half Marathon

- Lunch with your friends.

- Social program on Saturday night ... at least that is according to Mr. Dawson.

- Sunday - breakfast and for some departure.

If you have never done an event before this is a very laid back event and among the Sparkers who will be there - many of us have done events before - and don't hesitate to ask (there is no such thing as a dumb question ... if you don't have the answer it is not a dumb question). We want everyone who comes to this event to have a great time, have fun and the desire to return of for the 5th anniversary in 2015.

Starting next weekend - start looking at the weather forecast for packing purposes.

Finally .. just go over the event website http://eliterunners.com/just-a-short-run/ eliterunners.com/just-a-short-run/
