Simply Women 5K Packet Pick-Up Friday

Simply Women 5k run/walk for women & girls
Saturday, July 28, 2012
9-11:30 a.m.
Race starts at 9 am at Yellow Springs High School (on-site registration and packet pick-up 7:45 am to 8:30 am).

Join us for the 4th Annual Simply Women 5k! Bring your Mother, Sisters, Daughters, and Friends to enjoy a 3.1 mile run or walk from the high school through the tree-lined streets of Yellow Springs and back to the high school.

We are holding a 5k Packet Pick-up in downtown Yellow Springs the evening prior to the race. For those of you who joined us last year…we are hoping for better weather this year!

Friday night, July 27, 2012 from 7:00pm to 9:00pm, the Packet Pick-up (held in downtown Yellow Springs at Dino’s Cappuccinos, 225 Xenia Avenue), will feature music and prize give-aways.

Melissa Heston of the 360 Degree Private Training Studio, an event sponsor, is coordinating the Packet Pick-up with Simply Women Ohio — “this expo is about getting women excited about the 5k and to encourage those on the fence to sign up.” Pre-registered participants may pick up their t-shirts, swag bag, and race bibs. Registration will also be open during the expo for those just learning about the event and hoping to join the fun. Online registration will remain open until the evening prior to the race at www.simplywomenohio.org/registration. All are welcome to attend, so bring your friends and family!

Enjoy pre-race music and warm-up activities with certified athletic trainer, post-race awards, refreshments, and enter a drawing for prizes! This is a fun and empowering event for women and girls of all ages. Proceeds from this event benefit programming for Simply Women Ohio which seeks to promote fitness, health and wellness, and a supportive network for women and girls.
