Platinum Sombrero 5K Is Here

Standard

I am excited to announce The Platinum Sombrero 5K, my first ever virtual event to host.  This is a virtual 5K with proceeds being donated to St. Jude in Memphis, TN. The event can be done at any venue that you wish. You can run/jog/walk/crawl/skip the distance. Complete the 5K on a treadmill at you gym, run your favorite route in town, or stroll in neighborhood for the distance. No proof is required for this event, but it would be great to see pictures and times from participants. All race participants will be emailed a race bib and will be mailed a 3″ diecast finisher’s medal.   I will provide a breakdown of costs versus donation once I know the definite price of the medals and postage. You can run the race any day during the week of July 7 – July 13, 2013.  Race bibs will be customized based on your favorite MLB team (if you submit a favorite team) and will not violate any copyright laws.

Why platinum sombrero you may ask?  Simple, in baseball, a platinum sombrero is the name associated with striking out 5 times in one game, and since a strikeout is listed as K in baseball, I felt it was a natural correlation for this race.

The following is a sneak peek at the rough draft for the medal:
