5k Results are up and shirts are here!

1 Comment

The results of the 2010 Mayfair 5k are now up on our results page. The top male and female each earned a $100 prize and the top winners of each age group took home a stainless steel water bottle.

The shirts just came into the office as well from Standard Screen Printing, whom I’d recommend never using as there is a misprint on both sides. Please feel free to swing by the office on 6th and Hamilton streets. You can find directions by clicking the link below. Please come by and pick up a t-shirt!

Age Group Prizes?

No Comments

It’s the story of the summer 5k. Run a race, your in pretty decent shape and end up winning an age group award. Most of the time, it’s a medal or some sort of paper weight with the race name on it. I want to make this race different. So lets try something different, if you leave a message with an idea and link to somewhere we can get it, we’ll consider having a different prize than a medal.

I’d like to get something practical, that you would like and can use and not just hang up on your wall. So leave your idea’s below and let me know what you have in mind!

5k course map announced

No Comments

Ta-da! Here is the course map for the Mayfair 5k. For many of you who ran this in the past, we used to go under the Ott street bridge into the Rose Gardens and return the same way. This year, since it’s being worked on, we will cross Ott street and head into the Rose Gardens.

If you’d like to see a LARGER version of the map, simply click on the image above. It will take you to the large size where you can download it and use it as wallpaper.

The course starts on Ott and Cedar Creek Road. The first half mile is run in Cedar Beach Park where we will make a turn onto Hamilton Street at the gate by Yocco’s. Follow the sidewalk all the way up Hamilton back to Ott Street, turn right and you’ve already run the first mile. Second mile is mainly run in the Rose Gardens, which is currently being paved. Once you leave the Rose Gardens, cross Ott Street and turn left on Hamilton, there isn’t too much farther to go. We will reenter Cedar Beach at the 24th street entrance, and shoot left down the homestretch, ending pretty close to where we started.
