Thanks for your interest in participating in the 3nd annual virtual half marathon sponsored by BooksFromBug. If you ran with us last year - welcome back! If this is your first year - welcome to the family! Between August 15, 2014 and August 21, 2014 complete 13.1 miles in either a series of walks/runs or all at once. You do not have to prove you finished or even your speed. We do this on the honor system. Pictures are not required but fun to have and share with the group on Facebook! :) https://www.facebook.com/pages/BooksFromBugorg/128541263905992
This is our only fundraiser, so if you want to participate, now's the time! :) The goal is to move - be it walking, jogging, wogging, running....you get the drift =).
If bling is not your thing....participation is free =).
If you want racing bling - the cost is $20 USD (US and Canadian address). If you are outside the US and Canada - you are still welcome to run with us; however, the bling is $25 USD to cover the additional shipping costs.
The entrance fee covers the cost of the medal, shipping, and the rest goes to BooksFromBug. All payments will be accepted via PayPal. If you use a different email address/ID for PayPal than you will be using to sign up - please let me know in the PayPal message to seller box otherwise I have no way to match it up. Medals must be preordered and paid for by 6/30/14 midnight PDT but will not ship until early August.
So what about the bling? Our medal this year about a 3" round!
Need a tech shirt to go with that fancy medal? We have those! They can be ordered separately at our online store: http://booksfrombug.logosoftwear.com/
What is BooksFromBug you ask? We are a non-profit charity that donates new books to schools, hospitals, shelters, etc. in memory of my daughter Halleigh aka Bug. You can find us at http://BooksFromBug.org
