10:30 Your invitation to join us for worship, dressed as you are. We will also do a “shoe blessing” for runners, similar to our annual “backpack blessing” for students.
Note on course cutoff times. We want people to feel welcome to participate even if they are a slow runner. The race director of this event has often been the absolute last person to finish in many events. I know how it goes, and I want everyone to be able to participate. However, we do want to be able to start the awards at the designated time, so that we can continue the morning with our unique format of a race before a church service. If you feel that the schedule will be too tight for you to finish your race distance in the time allotted, contact me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss an early start for you. We want to welcome everyone at the finish.
