Virtual Runners Wanted for 2014 Run For The Horses 5k
Virtual Runners Wanted for 2014 Run For The Horses 5k: The season at Saratoga Race Course may be over but the festivities surrounding thoroughbred aftercare march on. The Thoroughbred Retirement Foundation is hosting their 5th annual walk/run to benefit retired horses. Even if you’re not a runner, or live in another state or country, participating in the Run For The Horses 5k is easy with a “virtual” registration and run.
Registration is now open for the 2014 Run For The Horses 5k. The physical and virtual run take place on Saturday, September 6, 2014 at Saratoga Spa State Park. All proceeds of the event will benefit the TRF, the oldest and largest sanctuary for retired thoroughbreds in the United States, with a herd number of 1000.
If you’re a virtual runner in the 2014 Run For The Horses 5k, a small $20.00 donation will award you with a race t-shirt and warm heart! This may be a great Saturday event idea for a running group or your friends on the treadmill at your local gym!
Post time for the 5th Annual Run/Walk and Kids Fun Run is 8:00 AM ET with an early check-in time of 7:00 AM.
15-year-old Conner Oakman dominated the 2013 Run For The Horses 5k. Just three-minutes behind Conner, Alyssa Herrington took home the win for the ladies!
