May the 4th Be with You: Dawn of a New Hope is technically a group run and social and not a race. We will treat it like a race just because it will be a one mile beach run with results posted on ultrasignup and, it will be part of the Rough Runners Trails Race Series with worth a maximum of 12 points.
This year, May 4th falls on a school night, Thursday night. Because most of us have day jobs we will kick off the run at 6:30 pm, sharp!
It’s free to participate in this run but we ask for a $10 donation that will go entirely to Cure Childhood Cancer. You may make the $10 payment in person on run day or donate it directly to Cure Childhood Cancer’s website, your choice.
Show up for the run at South Beach, just below the Tybee pier dressed as your favorite Star Wars character. We will run half a mile northward and then turn around and run back (it’s an out and back). The start/finish is under the Tybee pier. We will take personal pictures of anyone that wants one under the Tybee pier in your Star Wars outfit. The pictures will be provided for download on Facebook group, Run 4 a Reason.
You are expected to time your own run. At the end of the mile run write your name and run time and favorite costume on a post-it that will be provided. Place the filled out post-it in the ziplock bag that will be there and at Hucapoo’s we’ll tally the votes and jot down the finish times for the run results that will be posted on ultrasignup.
We will be doing a special recreation photo shoot of the following after the mile run. YOU are the cast!
After the run, drive up to Huc-a-poos just 2.7 miles north for a good time with old and new friends.
The finish times will be posted on ultrasignup.
