2013 BCS 5k + 10k @ Texas A&M
Join us Saturday, September 28, at 8am for the BCS 5k + 10k at the George Bush Presidential Library on the campus of Texas A&M University. This is the 3rd race of the BCS Marathon race series and the first race of the 2013 distance challenge, a warm-up series leading to the Scott and White BCS Marathon + Half Marathon on 12/8.
The BCS 5k + 10k will be run entirely on the A&M campus, with a separate 5k and 10k course. The start and finish lines are in the parking lot of the Bush Library. The cost to participate is $25 for the 5k and $35 for the 10k until 9/18 when prices will increase $5 each. The first 100 to register for each distance will receive $5 off the standard prices! The race will be chip-timed and chips will be on your race bibs. All participants will receive a race t-shirt and a post race Cafe Eccell treat.
You can expect a lively atmosphere, plenty of volunteer help and an incredible running community that will make this a "can't miss" event!
All proceeds of the race will benefit Mercy Project, a local non-profit organization working to rescue children from slavery in Ghana, Africa. www.mercyproject.net
