The Tryon Half Marathon is one week from today. When the TRC took on this endeavor, we did it with realistic expectations. It's a first time race. It's 13.1. It's in a smaller, more rural area. We wanted to keep it simple.
But, as the registration numbers come in and the volunteers step forward and sponsors donate funds and in-kind goods and services, we are realizing that this half marathon is exceeding our wildest expectations.
So, in advance, we want to thank those that are participating in whatever way you are. Even the folks that will come out cheer, you play an important role.
Today is the last day to sign up online at the early bird rate of $40. You have until 11:59 p.m. EST at www.strictlyrunning.com. After that, we will take registrations at packet pickup at Harmon Field in the Cabin from 4:00 p.m. until 7:00 p.m. and then again on race morning, same place, from 6:30 a.m. until 7:30 a.m.
Here are directions to the race and packet pick-up: Harmon Field.
Looking forward to seeing you cross the finish line and helping Thermal Belt Outreach Ministry outrun poverty!
