The 5th annual Time To Sperr event will be held Saturday, August 24, 2013. Last year was our biggest and best year yet! We had close to 800 registrants and an estimated 1,500 people at the park! New this year tech socks (brought to you by Dr. Melissa Brown) to the first 500 registrants along with tech shirts!
Time to Sperr is organized by Sue Derick (a marathon runner), and Andrea Shields (Sperr Memorial Park Committee member). Also on the race committee are Trooper Paul Campbell, Ivonne Campbell, Trooper Chris Shields, and Jim Derick (also a 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 past Sikorsky Hawk Works and through residential neighborhoods. Runners in the 3K event will travel along the town walking trail. NEW in 2012 we added 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 23rd 5:00pm - 8:00pm at Sperr Memorial Park (at the pavilion on Kahler Road). New registration will also be taking place at that time. Registration will again be open on race day (Saturday, August 24th) at 7:00am and closing 8:30am sharp, located past the monument on Lowe Road at the green garage (NOT at the pavilion).
