Rock Slide fun run rescheduled; There’s still time to register
by Carin R. Kirkegaard
With heavy snow threatening to blanket the racecourse, the Rock Slide, Douglas County Schools 5K fun-run fundraiser, was rescheduled for Saturday, December 12.
The 5K run will begin at 9 a.m. with the 1-mile run/walk to begin following the finish – and don’t forget the Kiwanis Club pancake breakfast after the races. Race participants can pick-up race packets and t-shirts that morning between 7:30 a.m. and 8:45 a.m.
According to Tony Golden, race director, the number of event participants so far this year is down. The early snows throughout October caused soccer and football games to be rescheduled, extending these seasons into November and prohibiting many from signing up to run. With the new date, Golden is hopeful more families will be able to race.
In 2008, Buffalo Ridge Elementary (BRE) took home the bonus prize of $1000 for the most registrations. As of press time, BRE was again in first place with 92 registrants; followed by Timber Trail Elementary with 50; DCS Montessori had 45; Rocky Heights Middle School had 41; American Academy Charter had 34; and Rock Canyon High School had 12.
