Lighthouse Run – 40th Anniversary
June 16 @ 8:00 am - 10:00 am
This is the 40th anniverary year.
During its 39 year history, Lighthouse Run, presented by Eductators Credit Union, The Journal Times and the Racine Family YMCA, has evolved into one of the premier road run/walks in the state of Wisconsin. That tradition continues in 2018 with the Image Management 10 Mile Run, Financial Service Group 4 Mile Run, Modine 4 & 2 Mile Fun Run/Walk, Kids Dash and LandMark Credit Union Mascot Challenge.
Offering both competitive and non-competitive events, Lighthouse Run serves as the official kick-off to summer fitness awareness.
Proceeds from your participation in the Lighthouse Run help support the YMCA Strong Kids Campaign.
Your contribution helps us provide program support and financial assistance to youth and families who need it in our community. Only by working together can we give more kids the opportunity to grow strong in spirit, mind and body.
Anyone is eligible to form a team. At least six (4-mile) or four (10-mile) team members must cross the finish line to place in the team standings. You may enter a team in one of the three divisions:
· COMPETITIVE CORPORATE– All Team members must be an employee receiving a W2 from that particular business/ corporation.
· COMPETITIVE OPEN – All others
· NON-COMPETITIVE FUN RUN/WALK– For the Modine Fun/Run Walk
See event organizers website for more details.
Racine Area Running Club members: Lighthouse Run RARC/Roma Lodge team update:
From Jeff DeMatthew, Club Secretary:
Last year, we had two 10 Mile teams. One was 1st in the open competitive team division, and the other was a very good 4th out of about 20 teams. And, our 4 Mile Team finished a very respectable 6th in their race.
So, let’s see what we can put together this year.
It is best if you send your entries to me (Jeff), instead of sending them right to the race. And it is better still, if you don’t wait until the week of the race!
Also, remember, we are looking to have as many runners as possible run for one of the teams. (You don’t have to be a member of either the RARC or Roma Lodge to run on a team with us.)
So, if you know someone that is thinking of running, I encourage you to forward this to them, and let them know that:
1) we want them to run for us;
2) the fee to enter is $6.00 less to sign up on a team, than it is to enter individually; and, in addition
3) all RARC and Roma Lodge team members are invited to my Lighthouse run party and bonfire later that evening.
Any questions, contact Jeff.
