Registration (and fundraising) are now open for Trail to a Cure’s 5th Annual Ride/Walk/Run event!
This annual event is held (rain or shine) on the Katy Trail along the Missouri River–a relatively level course though a the scenic Missouri River valley.
The event features activities for the sedentary to the athletic among us–and this year, a half-marathon has been added, with timing provided by Ready, Set, Results!
This event offers several distances to choose from, and all routes are round trip, so you end up where you started, at the Rocheport Trailhead of the Katy Trail.
The big event is planned to end at 2:00 pm so that all participants can join their family, friends, and supporters at Les Bourgeois’ A-Frame winery atop the bluffs in Rocheport. The post-event celebration features food for participants, a silent raffle, live music, and lots of fun and libations.
All of the relevant details are included in the TTAC_Event_Participant_Packet_2012 (PDF).
To register and begin fundraising for the cause, visit our fast and convenient online registration page. Funds raised by Trail to a Cure are passed along to our beneficiaries: amfAR, the Foundation for AIDS Research; Bond Life Science’s Center HIV/AIDS research projects at MU; and Rain of Central Missouri.
Whether you are a super-fit athlete or someone who enjoys potato chips for breakfast, you are welcome on the trail. And given the Cinco de Mayo date and the fact that this is our fifth anniversary, there are sure to be lots of surprises!
