5K @ 8:30 AM;  1M @ 9:30 AM

Our racing mission continues to be to produce affordable, hedonistically fun & athletically competitive races, that are technically sound (correctly-measured courses with minimum turns and visible distance – mile or Km – markers),  that also benefit some charity(-ies) with a populist & gender parity focus – for the average runner/walker (including the novices) and also for the seasoned, serious racer.

An AmericanAcademy of Physicians’ report in May 2010 stated that “the general goal of nursing home care is to maximize resident autonomy, function, dignity, comfort…” That is as it should be. Interested families with residents in these facilities and advocacy groups would like to ensure that these goals are pursued and met.

This race is to promote that message and provide some material support  to those efforts.

Net cash proceeds from the race will partly benefit Blessed Redeemer Nursing Home Ministry of Irving and promote Nursing Home Care advocacy.  We’ll also collect personal health care items for Blessed Redeemer Nursing Home Ministry.

More info  -- including online registration -- is available on the Web at http://www.ASSISTSystemsRacing-plus.com  The race flyer/entry form can be downloaded from this Web site.

There’s a little incline in Mile 1 of the 5K  for character. Then it’s fast and flat as a pancake the rest of the way. The head will sing Hallelujah! The heart will find it Heavenly! The lungs will fall in Love! The feet … ah, the feet…they will Feel & caress &  hug!  ****

Visible & legible Distance markers @ Miles 1, 2, 3!   ****
