Baltimore Women's Classic 5K
- Hi Jim,
Would you mind posting this to your email list? Thank you!
The Baltimore Women's Classic 5K is only 3 weeks away - June 22, 2008 at the Baltimore Museum of Industry at 8:00 a.m. The race fee increases on Monday, June 2nd, so register soon! We are online at active.com or you can mail in a registration form (plus sign up race day).
Top Ten Reasons to do the Baltimore Women's Classic
10. With a Kids' Fun Run and the opportunity for men to volunteer, it's a family event! (Volunteer form - http://www.baltimorewomensclassic.com/volform.html)
9. Special recognition for mother-daughter teams, largest team, and group raising the most money.
8. The top 3 fastest times in 5-year age groups receive awards and certificates. Not fast? You still have a chance to win a random prize!
7. All participants get a NEW BALANCE TECH TEE - great for the hot weather, it wicks moisture away from your body leaving you cool and refreshed.
6. The best GOODY BAGS in town filled with loads of stuff just for women!
5. The post-race village ROCKS! There are opportunities for shopping (purses, make-up, jewelry), obtaining health information, and getting a massage.
4. The camaraderie of women cannot be matched in co-ed races!
3. You will wear a timing device that will give you your EXACT time - from crossing the start to coming across the finish line.
2. Be a part of HISTORY - we are the 2nd oldest women's race in the United States. 2008 marks the 33rd year!
And the top reason to do the BWC:
1. Being an Olympic year, we celebrate WOMEN and their right to participate in running events at any distance and at any age. The BWC is part of the Women's Distance Festival (WDF) in Maryland. In 1979, the Road Runners Club of America (RRCA) started the WDF in response to the lack of distance running events in the Olympic Games for women.
There are always some extras we didn't even mention:
Roses at the finish line
Over 100 volunteers ensuring you have a great race
Loads of people lining the course
Music all along the way
And a "refresher table" for women at the bathrooms! What co-ed race has that???
