Sports Basement Weekly Update 3/22

From Mike's latest email...

Happy Rainy Friday everyone! Another week by and another sunday coming up, which means, yep, you've guessed it, another sunday run! Somehow I managed to roll my ankle last week by stepping on one of those little spikey balls that fall from the tree, so keep an eye out for those darn things, they're like ninjas! They'll sneak up on you! !!!

5K FUN RUN UPDATE !!! For those of you that are new to the run group email list this week or those of you that are just reading both last weeks email as well as this weeks email.... Sports Basement will be having it's 2nd Annual 5K Fun Run on March 9th at 9 AM. This is a 5K course that starts and finishes here at sports basement in sunnyvale. The course will not be closed off to traffic, so runners need to be careful! We are limiting this to 120 Entrants, and as of this morning it is almost half way full, so if you haven't signed up yet and would like to run in our 5k Fun Run, send me the following information... Name (First and Last), Gender (M or F), Age (on race day), Address, Phone Number, and email address that you'd like me to contact you at. Grab a friend and sign up! All 120 participants will receive a free shirt, and best of all this race is FREE! Yes, you read that right, it's FREE.

This race was put together last year as a thank you to our run group and i'd like to make this an annual race. I will send out an email to this run group list once all 120 spaces have been filled up, and I will also be sending out a reminder email about the race the week before.

2nd Annual Sports Basement 5K Fun Run - 4/9

From Mike's Latest Email:

First of all, Happy Valentines Day to everyone! I'm sending this week's reminder email out a day early as I have some special news to announce to everyone! I'm pleased to announce the 2nd Annual Sports Basement 5K Fun Run!!! I was not a part of putting this race together last year, and the people involved no longer are with Sports Basement, so I have been working with someone from our marketing department to get this thing together. On Sunday, March 9th, we will have the 2nd Annual Sports Basement 5K Fun Run. This run was initially put together last year in appreciation for the Sports Basement Run Group, and i'd like to keep this tradition going. I've attached a flyer with information about the race on it, but i'll also type it out in this email.

When/Where: The 5K fun run will be held on Sunday, March 9th (so in just a few weeks!), The race is LIMITED to 120 ENTRANTS, and those who respond first will be entered in first. This race begins and finishes at Sports Basement here in Sunnyvale. There is NO COST for this race and all 120 entrants will receive a free t-shirt for the race. We will only have select sizes, which will be given out on race day on a first come first serve basis. Race bib/packet pick up will be on the morning of the race starting at 8 AM (So please arrive early so we can start the race on time!). Some food and drink will be provided following the race.

Registering: To Register for this race (remember it's limited to 120 entrants) please respond to this email with the following information.... Name (first and last), Address, Phone Number, Age (on race day) and Email address (yes I realize you're emailing me back, but please provide it again, thanks!). I will still need everyone to sign a standard race liability waiver, so if you register in the store, I will have that information in a binder at the register, so if you're registering by responding to this email, you'll need to sign this waiver on the morning of the race (unless of course you come in before then!).

Course: The course will be the same as last years race, which is not blocked off to traffic. Remember, this is a fun run, so just be aware of the cars on the road. They may not stop for you! We will have volunteers out along the course to help everyone out as well.
