Where is Blanchard Woods Park? It's the new soccer complex park off Blanchard Road which is just off Washington Road: 4600 Blanchard Woods Drive. Not to be confused with Blanchard Park off BelAir Rd.
Describe the 5k course: The 5K course begins on the soccer field at BlanchardWoods Park in Evans and leaves the fenced area to circle the outer loop trail. There are several hills on the course and the terrian is dirt, grass, and/or wood chips. The finish is on the soccer complex.
Describe the 1 mile course: 2 laps around the soccer field - all on grass. Strollers are welcome.
How do I get sponsorships? Please ask at least 10 people to sponsor each participant for any amount. Please download then print the Trot to Adopt Sponsor form and staple a collection envelope to it. Donations can be cash or checks made out to "The Project 143 Foundation Inc." (please leave the memo line blank) & place check or cash in an envelope with the last name of the family you are sponsoring, or Village of Hope written on the outside.
What should I expect on race day? Blanchard Woods Park has restroom facilities and ample parking. The 5K will begin at 10:00 am, but we will have Tshirt and bib # pick-up, and race-day registration beginning at 9:00 am. The 1 mile Family Fun Run/Walk will begin shortly after the 5K start, approximately 10:15. Awards will be presented after the 5k.
Registration Question: What if I want to run the 5K, but my husband and kids want to do the Family 1 mile? Each person on the 5K course has to be registered and paid for separately. So, you would register for the 5K ($30), and then your husband would register himself and your children as a family for the 1 mile ($30).
Who do I make checks out to? Checks should be made payable to "The Project 143 Foundation Inc." (please leave the memo line blank) & place check in an envelope with the last name of the family you are sponsoring, or Village of Hope written on the outside. Checks made out for greater than $100 will receive documentation for tax purposes in February.
