The 2013 Bumper Run
Promoting safer pedestrian and vehicular traffic for all who share the road.
Starting Time: 6:15pm, Wednesday, February 13th
Location: Stony Creek MetroPark, Washington, MI North of Utica, @ 26mi & Shelby Rd.
Course: 1 loop around Stony Creek MetroPark on paved bike path (may be snow-covered). Rolling terrain. (You must stay on bike path or risk being ticketed by the park rangers.) The distance is 6 miles. Cold.
Registration: None required. Just show up and run at your own risk.
Race Entry Fee: $0.00
Facilities: Stoney Creek MetroPark, park entry fee will be $5.00 (may have to pay by mail if entry booths are closed). Or if they don't check your vehicle, it costs nothing to get in. Race will start and finish at the Boat Launch (go left - clockwise - around the park road after entering the park, and it is the second parking area on the right). There is a warming shelter (also used by the ice-skaters) next to the parking lot. You will meet there for instruction before the race, and post-race ceremonies will also take place there.
Awards: Tough competition, sense of accomplishment, burn a few calories, and a good workout.
Scoring: All runners who complete the course will receive a Popsicle stick or finish card as they cross the finish line which has their finish place on it. You will be asked to write your name, time, and age on it, and hand it in to the race director (namely me).
Day Care Provided: Yes. If your kids are obnoxious, run fast so I don't have to watch them very long. Please let me know ahead of time if you will be needing this.
Volunteers: Any are welcome. There's nothing much for you to do, but I'll welcome the half-hour or so of company while I stand there freezing my tush off and wait for the runners to finish their race
