The 2013 Gate River Run is just a few short weeks away, so its time to talk about the ACRR members-only reserved area.
This year’s ACRR exclusive area will feature Porta-Potties, beer, massages, and a changing area. Please bring a food item to share after the race. ACRR will provide soda, water, utensils, cups, napkins, etc. You may want to bring a chair or blanket to sit on.
Shelby is again heading up our Gate River Run area this year. She will need volunteers to help set up on Friday and on Saturday morning. We also need a couple of 10×10′ canopies. Please contact her if you can help.

Our club’s signature race, the Matanzas 5000 and Fun Run takes place on January 26, 2013. Race proceeds go to running teams at St. Johns County high schools and middle schools. We gave money to 16 schools this year for these teams which receive little or no funding from the School District. Over the past 4 years alone, we have donated over $50,000 to the schools in our county. There is a bonus to the school with the most entrants. Entry fee is $20.00 before Jan. 12. For race entry, race expo and sponsorship information, go to www.matanzas5k.com.

*ACRR will be hosting the first EVER Holiday Prediction Run on Tuesday, November 27. The Prediction Run will take the place of the usual Tuesday night run from Publix. Registration will start at 5:45 pm, and the run will begin at 6:15 sharp. The rules are simple: show up to run, predict your time to run the 3, 4, or 5 mile loop, and leave your watch behind. No watches allowed! The top 2 runners closest to their predicted time will win a new pair of shoes from 1st Place Sports! Other prizes will be awarded to the runner ups!*
*The entry fee for the Prediction Run is a new, unwrapped toy. We will be donating the toys to the Saint Augustine Sertoma Club, an organization that provides toys to needy families in St Johns county for the holidays. *
*Winners will be announced after the run at Ripe Bistro, where there will be free appetizers and drink specials. *
*Come out to this fun event and support a great cause! Remember, leave your watch behind!*
