.The Sunflower Striders Board wishes you all a Happy New Year !
Topeka to Auburn Practice Run:
MOTHER NATURE WINS ! This practice run has been CANCELLED. See you all Saturday, January 15 for the 40th Anniversary Topeka to Auburn Half Marathon!!
Please be careful during the upcoming inclement weather. The cold is health threatening and footing can be treacherous. A few days of treadmill is a better alternative than frost bite/broken bones.
If you got to be indoors:
Paul forward a website that lists the top ten motivating running movies. You may or not agree, but watching one or two of them may help fight cabin fever.
Topeka to Auburn 2022;
Registration for the 2022 Topeka to Auburn is now open at runsignup.com Both in person and virtual race options are available. Current plans are for a point to point race. However COVID-19 protocols may require changes to the route and other aspects of the run. A special 40th Anniversary finishers medal will be awarded. Also a Striders Hoodie will be for sale .
An important aspect of the event is having enough volunteers. Sharon Wenger has graciously volunteered to recruit/coordinate the volunteers for the T2A. So please agree to help when Sharon contacts you. And you still can contact Paul or myself about volunteering.
Another aspect of staging the T2A is seeking sponsorship/donations. We have received some already and are working with several entities to receive sponsorship/donations. If you think your employer or favorite business would want to sponsor or donate please feel free to contact Les Watson at firstname.lastname@example.org
or Paul Wagner at paul.wagner@ washburn.edu.
