3/31 Spring perfection! Sunrise loop. Ruck info. Cool stuff in April!

Thanks to the Runtoberfest 5K race planners for meeting last night and hashing out some important details. If anybody has a conference room we can borrow, we’re going to meet Monday at 11 to work on the city permit. Anybody is welcome to join. If you’ve got a conference table, we need it for about 90 min. Let me know.

Weather should be dry and cool for the am loops. Gonna have a badass sunrise loop at 7:30 so get your cameras ready. There will be two 60 min loops tomorrow and the second loop will have a 30 min option. All are welcome and encouraged to get out of your bed and get to work!

Don’t forget the ruck we’ve got going on in about two weeks. These are always a great experience for a good cause. In addition to raising awareness about veteran suicide prevention, we’re looking out for the local VFW as well. Please check out the FB event and let us know you’ll be there so we can buy enough, uh, water.

Now that spring is here and other important milestones that come with April, we’re going to step up the extracurricular activities so BOLO for slow rides and maybe a hash run!

Here’s the tomorrow info from Drake:

6:30 – 60 min

7:30 – 60 min (30 min option)

See you in the morning!

Springtime! Fayette Celebrity Dancers! Runtoberfest 5K!

Happy spring! Thanks so much for the gift cards last week, we collected over 30 of them and the family was blown away by your generosity. If you didn’t get a car magnet, they cost $5….cash money. Tomorrow we’re gonna meet at Drake for two loops. The couch to 5K group finished their program last week to everyone is on the same schedule and routes. If you know of anyone interested in participating in the C25K program, we’ll have another one soon. Perhaps a C25K program would be good for the kids starting after school gets out?

We’re gonna need your help soon…HNL is the recipient of a grant from Realtors Caring for Fayette this year! We’re helping them to promote an event on May 12, 2018 – Fayette Celebrity Dancers. Fayettecelebritydancers.com Please do what you can to promote this event on social media so they can sell tickets. It’s an awesome group of people and we really appreciate their donation to HNL!

The race planning has really gotten off to a great start. We’re waiting on some permitting from PTC before we go worldwide but the plan is for HNL to host The Runtoberfest 5K at Line Creek Brewing on 10/27/2018. This has been something we’ve wanted to do for quite some time and your race committee is hard at work to make it happen. We’re raising money to send deserving kids to summer camp. While we live in an affluent community, there are some kids who don’t get to experience the awesomeness of camp because it’s expensive. If your family struggles to make ends meet, extras like summer camp are not even a consideration. The independence and resiliency kids learn from camp combined with the relationships and inclusion they experience is a pretty special gift. We’ll choose the kids, they choose the camp, families feel the HNL love. This is going to be an epic event for a great cause. Stay tuned for more soon!

Here is the info for tomorrow:

6:30 -73.61 min – Led by Geoff!

7:45 – 30 min - Led by Izzy!

Much love HNL!

Shamrock 10K - GIFT CARDS DUE - Suck it up

Tomorrow is race day and it’s supposed to rain. This is not a problem. We have some great stuff happening with HNL these days and we can’t let a little rain deter us! If you’ve not yet done so, please hit the Shamrock 10K Facebook page and let us know what you’re bringing! Dee is graciously providing her patio, beer, OJ, and champagne. We’ll be collecting those gift cards tomorrow for the family burned out of their home. You will need a gift card in hand to get the HNL swag! Cards are going to the family on Monday! After today the HNL swag will be available for purchase. If you cannot make it tomorrow, we will come to your house and get the card and leave the gift. Email your address: fcs4507@gmail.com and you’ll be on the list. Try and come out even if you can’t run, it’ll be fun!

Race starts at 7:00! 30 min warmup run loop at 6:30. 5K turnaround is on the course. There will not be any front to backs so KNOW THE ROUTE! Rain will probably wash the markings away so KNOW THE ROUTE! Here’s the good news, the course is easy to memorize! Just think Flat Creek and the lake.

Here’s the basics: Ga. Shrimp to Flat Creek Trail all the way around to Northlake Drive. Use the pedestrian bridge behind Partners then go down hip pocket and around the lake. Once you get around the lake, take the tunnel under at Peachtree City Conference Center and up the hill to the finish in front of Fresh Market! Easy! 5Kers turn around on Flat Creek when you encounter the HNL sign and you’re good! Everyone stay on the paths! Use the tunnels and bridges! We’ll have a warmup 30 min run at 6:30 for anyone interested. 6:30 SHARP!!! Here is a map:
