Your Prep to 5K Roadmap
The first event of the 2021-2022 school year is 5-weeks away, and we can’t wait for this opportunity to gather as a community (IN-PERSON!) and to celebrate our Falcon family! And what better way than with a 5K and post-race party?!
We know this time of year can get busy for us all, so we went ahead and pulled together all the key dates and details so that you don’t miss a beat.
Below you will find:
- Frassati Family Early Bird Registration Reminders
- Falcon Community Members Registration Details
- Call for Sponsors
- T-Shirt Deadline
- Little Tyke Fun Run vs. 5K
- Additional Resources
As mentioned on the flyer in our ‘Back to School’ packets, families have a unique opportunity to claim their team name early, recruit team members, and register by Friday, September 10 to earn an ‘Out of Uniform’ pass for each Frassati student on the team.
Simply fill out the form you received in your ‘Back to School’ packet, attach a check to the sheet, and return it to the main office by end of the day, Friday, September 10.
Those who earn ‘Out of Uniform’ passes will receive them on Friday, September 17.
Virtual registration will go live on Wednesday, September 8, and is open to everyone! And we mean EVERY ONE!
When the registration site goes live, this post will be updated to include that registration link.
Please note, that while this year’s event is in-person, those who would like to complete a virtual run (as we did in 2020) are welcome to do so! Simply register online, email Monica Kenney to coordinate your packet pick up, and on Friday, October 8, select your course and get after it! Please be sure to tag us on Instagram and Facebook and use the hashtag #fca5K2021 so we can celebrate your hard work!
Whether it is your business, a friend or family member’s, or just a local favorite, recruiting a Frassati 5K sponsor is a great way to further our mission, while engaging the community in bigger and better ways! Plus, if you have kindergarten through eighth-grade students registered, the amount of money raised through this referral will be counted towards your annual family fundraising commitment!
Send your referral to bit.ly/215Ksponsor today! On the registration page, simply have your referral enter your last name in the notes section, and we will credit your Sycamore account!
Another option is for a family to sign on as a sponsor. If you feel passionate about the Frassati community and experience, signing on as a sponsor in your family’s last name is a great way to show your support! To learn more about this opportunity, email Monica Kenney.
Please note, that to be included on the 5K shirts and promotional materials, we are asking sponsors to submit their registration by Friday, September 24.
Race participants are welcome to register up until 3:00 p.m. on Friday, October 8. However, in order to be counted in the t-shirt order and to receive your race shirt, you will need to submit your registration by 5:00 p.m. on Friday, September 24.
While the 5K is truly a fun run, welcome to runners and walkers of all ages and skill levels, we understand that younger kids may want to run a race that is all about them! So at 3:30 p.m. on the Frassati soccer fields, kids ten and younger are welcome to complete a smaller run course, known as the Little Tyke Fun Run. Those who register for this option will still receive a 5K shirt.
For those participating in the 5K, we ask that you take your place at the starting line by 3:45 p.m. for the opening prayer and national anthem.
The 5K course is a beautiful 3.2 mile run through our neighboring community. The course is blocked off by a Course Marshall, clearly marked for turns, and a water station will be set up at the 2-mile marker. You can review the course map here.
For more information on the schedule, please see the full lineup of details here.
We are looking for volunteers for this event, so be sure to sign up here if you are available to help!
The t-shirt proof will go live here in early September.
Team names will go live on our registration page on Friday, September 10. Once your team is live, be sure to direct friends, family members, and co-workers to register for the 5K under your team name! Each entry fee will be credited towards your family’s annual fundraising commitment.
