5K, Fun Run, & Carnival 2023
Spring is right around the corner and what better time to kick off our 5K, Fun Run & Carnival? On April 15, 2023, TCS will host its 5th Annual TCS 5K, Fun Run and Carnival here at TCS for our students (PreK-12th grade), families, staff and community. We will kick off the event at 10:00 am with a 5K in the neighborhood surrounding TCS, plus a shorter Fun Run (approximately 1 mile around the school) for our little runners*. Those interested in the timed walk/run around the neighborhood should select the 5K when registering. The shorter route will not be timed. The run/walk will be followed up by a carnival on the school grounds from 11:00 am – 2:00 pm. The carnival will include games, vendors, food and more. The 5K will be professionally timed again this year by Blue Ridge Timing via chipped bibs with medals for the top 3 male and female finishers in each age group (Under 13, 13-18, 19-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50+) plus the top male and female finisher overall. We will utilize a wave start for the 5K again this year to eliminate any large clusters of walkers/runners on any given area of the 5K route. This wave start will not impact the timing of individual runners. A runners “clock” does not start until they cross the starting line and ends once they cross the finish line. Run times will be announced once all runners have completed the course and times have been verified. Each walker/runner registered by March 26, 2023 will receive an official 2022 TCS 5K, Fun Run and Carnival T-shirt! Deadline for receipt of t-shirt is subject to change. Exact date will be confirmed by end of February.
Our fundraising goal for this year’s event is $65,000. Students will be encouraged to work towards a goal of $100 per student in sponsorships for their run/walk. Every penny earned during this event will go towards the operating costs of the school and enable us to maintain daily operations. Last year our student body knocked it out of the park raising over $70,000!
RUNNERS & WALKERS REGISTRATION
With $100 in sponsorships, the $15 registration fee is waived. Teams will be created by teachers, and potentially secondary student groups, to encourage some friendly competition. Students in Pre-K, Elementary and Secondary will all compete for individual and team/class prizes. Class and individual prizes will be communicated to students this week.
EVENT VENDORS & SPONSORS NEEDED
TCS family owned businesses are eligible to have a small logo for their business on our event t-shirt with a level 1/bronze sponsorship. Additional incentives are available at each sponsorship level. The deadline for sponsorship to have your logo displayed on our TCS 5K, Fun Run and Carnival t-shirt is NOON on Monday, March 20, 2023.
Please help us spread the word, invite your friends and family, share the social media posts and plan to be a part of this school wide event. It will be fun for the entire family!
*NOTE: Children 7 years of age and younger must run with a parent or another responsible adult. TCS faculty are not able to take responsibility for young runners.
