It's that time of year again! The Eye Run is just a few days away on Saturday, August 19th at 8:30 a.m.. We have been working so hard to prepare that the time has flown by! Here are a few things that you may want to know before Saturday.
* Race packet pick up will be Friday afternoon from 3 to 5 at Pearisburg Eye Associates located at 122 Tazewell Street, Pearisburg, Virginia. You may also pick up race packets the morning of the race from 7:30 to 8:15 inside Pearisburg Eye Associates.
*It is not too late to register - we will be accepting registration through the morning of the race. You may visit runsignup.com/EyeRun or fill out a hard copy at RunAbout Sports or Pearisburg Eye Associates to register. However, shirt sizes can not be ensured after August 5th.
*You can walk or run! We have many walkers who are participating in the 5k as well as runners. Participants of all levels are encouraged. We do ask that only runners participate in the 10k.
*We will have activities for children including a bouncy house, sidewalk chalk, face painting, bubbles and games. We also have a kids fun run so go ahead and bring your family to cheer you on (or sign the kids up for the fun run and cheer them on!)
*The official after party will be located at the Giles Country Club following the race and awards ceremony (500 Fort Branch Road, Pearisburg). Make sure to bring your Eye Run pint glass for drink and food specials. Papas pizzeria located on Tazewell Street will also be open for anyone that wants a quick but delicious bite to eat after the race.
We look forward to seeing you all on Saturday! It is shaping up to be an awesome event! Please let us know if you have any questions!
