Time To Sperr
7th Anniversary Run
Saturday, August 29, 2015
The 7th annual Time To Sperr event was held Saturday, August 29, 2015. We had close to 600 registrants and an estimated 1,000 people at the park!
Time to Sperr is organized by Race Director Sue Derick (President Southern Tier Running Club). Also on the race committee are Andrea Shields, Trooper Paul Campbell, Ivonne Campbell, Trooper Chris Shields, and Jim Derick (an elite marathon runner). All races start near the monument site and end on the rails to trails path. Runners in the 10k race will cross under I-86, and their course will take them down Daniel Zenker Dr. and through residential neighborhoods. Runners in the 3K event will travel along the town walking trail. We also have a FAST 5K course! See PDF files below of the course maps below. 800 meter "fun run" around the pond for children 10 & under before the awards ceremony.
All distance races will have a shotgun start at 9:00 am. With the number of participants and spectators increasing each year we strongly encourage car pooling the day of the run. Pre-registered participants will be able to pick up your race goody bags on Friday, August 28th 5:00pm - 8:00pm at Sperr Memorial Park (at the pavilion on Kahler Road), and again on Saturday morning. New registration will also be taking place at that time. Registration will again be open on race day (Saturday, August 29th) at 7:00am and closing 8:15am sharp, located past the monument on Lowe Road at the green garage (NOT at the pavilion).
All proceeds from the race will go toward maintenance and improvements at the park. Improvements completed and to be completed to the park thanks to last years fund raising event:
* Purchasing new benches and picnic tables
* Addition to garage storage area
* Mulch for all Adopt-A-Spot flower beds
* Hiring Scenic Services to assist in park maintenance near the monument area
* Purchase of additional swings
