Also http://www.active.com will list local events but there are only a couple so far.


“I logged 52357 steps this week which converts to approximately 26 miles. So it definitely gets me moving and converting other activities also helps. It also gets my husband and the dog moving more too :)” Linda H.

RELAY FOR LIFE http://main.acsevents.org/site/TR?pg=entry&fr_id=14605
6/05/09 – 6/06/09
7 p.m. – 7 a.m.
Sign-up by 4/25/09 to guarantee a t-shirt. $10 donation – you’ll receive a certificate upon completion of your 5K!

"I checked with the Committee and we think this is an excellent idea. Our plan is to have everyone interested sign-up at their meeting (I have attached a sheet). I would need to have it back by the 27th for our t-shirt order - so unfortunately it only gives people the opportunity to sign-up for one week. If they decide after the 27th to participate they are more than welcome, but we wouldn't be able to guarantee a t-shirt. This is the plan we have come up with: The day of Relay they can stop by our Registration table, check-in, receive their t-shirt, and start walking or running; on each lap they will collect a paperclip, when they have completed their 5K they will report back to the Registration table, drop off their paperclips, and receive a certificate of completion."
