**RSVPs are closed as you can no longer register as part of the team with the discounted rate...BUT if you still want to run with us as a team you can. Just register and pay on your own and let me know so I can add you here and then you will get updates.**
Hi All! This will be the 4th year in a row we do this as a team and it is the PERFECT 1st race for those of you interested. It is a very easy flat course and a fun atmosphere. If you have never raced in a 5k or 10k before and have always wanted to try...this is the one for you! Come see me if you want some running tips on how to train for your 1st race too. I am always happy to help get someone started in running. :-)
This is the 40th YEAR of this local race! We will register as "Team SHHC" to get the discounted rate. You will print out this form: http://runsealbeach.com/images/2014%20team%20form.pdf, complete it, sign and date it, and scan and email to me or bring to one of the hikes with your entry fee, and I as the organizer will submit us all together as a team. This all needs to be done BEFORE March 1st!!!
This is a flat course in Seal Beach and there is a 5k and a 10k to choose from...but as a "Team" we will do the 10k...but I always have several that join and do the 5k too and we start and finish at the same location so we still get together as a group.Both 5K & 10K courses are run on city streets which are asphalt paved.
All proceeds go to charity and "Run Seal Beach" is a non-profit program. Their sponsors provide this program to make a difference to the community of Seal Beach who we all love. :-) Please support these sponsors who do so much to give back to the community and who have signed up to sponsor this annual race for 2014 and come see them at the Vendor Area on Race Day.
Go to the website: (http://www.runsealbeach.com) and click on the sponsor logos to view their websites.
Last year they sold out and they expect the same this year so I want to ensure we all register EARLY! Run Seal Beach will be limiting registrations for 2014 at the first 5,500 registrations - so don't be left behind!
• If we can get at least 10 committed, we can do this as a "Team" and it is only $28 per person, and NO extra fees...but I will need a commitment and payment no later than March 1st!!!!!
• If we do it as individuals, the 5/10K Run or Walk Early Registration - $30.00 (until 3/1/14) This is if we do NOT have 10 members and go as individuals. There are additional fees this way as well.
• Individual Registration is through "Active.com" so there are additional fees, but if we do the group (minimum of 10 members required) then fees are waived and it is only $28 per person...and I will be paying out of my own pocket if we go as a group so you will need to get me CASH no later than March 1st!
RSVP as soon as possible so I can gauge whether we will be able to do this as a team and I will provide you with the registration form so you do not have to go to Active.com and pay the extra fees.
Oh...and with your registration you get a free Run Seal Beach t-shirt...but as a group we wear our Signal Hill Hiking Club shirts (for those of you that have them. A picture of the shirt is included above.)
Questions? Contact me. :-)
