This posting is a little different from our usual race posting as this is also the official homepage for the Running of the Jackets. This race and walk is a joint fundraiser for the Jeff Davis High School tennis team and Drama Club. At this point, the route is still being planned, but this posting will be updated with a course description and a link to course maps as soon as that is finalized.
In addition to the races, there will be a pancake breakfast as part of the event. You do not have to run to buy tickets for the pancake breakfast, but all runners get free entry to the breakfast with their race number. Tickets for the pancake sale will go on sale closer to the event date.
To register, go to our online registration at Active.com and sign up. If you prefer to register by mail or in person, a registration flyer will be posted here soon. Race-day registration will be available for any who wish to wait until the last minute to sign up, but T-shirts are only guaranteed to those to pre-register.
There will be trophies for the overall male and female finishers for both the mile and 5k races and there will be medals for the top three finishers in each age group. The age groups are as follows:
- 4 and under
- 70 and over
And if you're worrying about that Georgia-Florida game that Saturday, the race will be over in plenty of time for you to get ready for some football.
