That was a most informative 2 hour tour of the 5K race route.
The only “off road” race in Florida parks. It has trip hazards. Most of the race is one person wide sometimes two. The markings are line of sight. There is only parking available for 200 cars max. The gate opens at 8AM so our race has been pushed back to 9AM. We have 14 confirmed volunteers. Ranger says we need 30 for 250 cars. I don’t see us having 250 cars. He also brought up the fact that only a UTV 2 seater will work for our venue. That’s true! He gave me links for places that rent them out. Also only Verizon cell phones work in the park.
Those runners raising $150 of sponsors for their run will get a free Veteran Rescue T-Shirt. Merry Wiseman Sanchez is the closest right now. She is the only runner signed up. She says it was easy.
Our branded T-Shirts and Coffee Cups that fits Kurieg Machines will be on hand for sale. The shirts are all men pre shrunk Small, Med, Large, X Large. only. Our debit card machines is having issues so be sure to order online our website http://veteranrescue.org/shop or bring cash. Cups are $10 and shirts are $20. With no wifi available and only Verizon customers with service, it’s best to bring cash or order in advance.
