Early Bird Registration Extended for Duck Dash 5K and Fun Run
CARTERSVILLE, Ga.- Sept. 16, 2016: Those wanting to pre-register for the Duck Dash 5K and Fun Run, benefiting Advocates for Children, have a few extra days to enjoy the early bird registration prices. Early bird registration has been extended to 11:59 p.m. on Sept. 20, 2016. Prices will increase after that by $10 for the 5K and $5 for the Fun Run.
Both races are scheduled for Oct. 1 at Cartersville Primary School. On-site registration will start at 7 a.m., as well as packet pick up. Those who pre-register are guaranteed a t-shirt, as well as have the opportunity to receive their packets at Athletes Locker between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 30.
The 5K course is considered fast and flat with some rolling hills and the overall elevation is about a 2 percent change. The Fun Run is approximately .7 miles and open to children of all ages, but most fun for children 8 and under.
Runners or walkers may preregister by visiting the Advocates for Children website, www.AdvoChild.org. Fun Run early bird registration is $10 or $15 the day of the race. Early bird registration for the 5K is $25; day of registration for the 5K is $35. Early bird registration is now available until the end of the day, Sept. 20, 2016. However, participants can still pre-register after that deadline to ensure a t-shirt will be reserved for them.
This is the 12th year for the race, which raises money to support Advocates for Children and its programs that are dedicated to the treatment and prevention of child abuse and neglect. Advocates for Children serves more than 3,000 families and children annually.
