Please arrive at Storrs Pond via the usual entrance (GPS address: 59 Oak Hill Dr. in Hanover) and tell the person working at the gate that you're there for the UVRC event. The race will start at 5:30pm, so please plan accordingly! You will be able to see the group gathering for the race from the parking lot. The race will follow the Fiddlehead 5K course, which is the same as last year.
After the race, please make your way to the Bryne Pavilion. We will have volunteers at the end of the race to guide you in the right direction - it's only a short walk (or cool-down run) from the race's finish, right next to the pond. Feel free to jump in and go for a swim to cool off, we'll have our own beach! The club will provide all of the staple items of a BBQ (burgers, veggie burgers, hot dogs, buns, toppings, and condiments), but please bring a side dish (e.g. chips, salad, pasta salad, fruit), dessert, or drink (alcoholic beverages are fine as long as you are over 21). You can leave these in your car during the race or bring them over to the Bryne Pavilion before we get started.
If you are interested in volunteering, please let me know on the Google Form. We need people for set-up, break-down, and preparing/serving food. Thanks for your help!
I'm happy to answer any other questions, just send me an email.
