25th ANNUAL GE RUN THRU THE WOODS
The Thanksgiving Day Run Thru the Woods sponsored by GE will be held on Thanksgiving Day, Nov. 27, 2014, at The Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion.
A holiday tradition in The Woodlands Town Center, the annual Thanksgiving Day Run Thru the Woods Sponsored by GE and Directed by the South Montgomery County YMCA, is a race/walk designed for all ages and levels of fitness. This year marks the event’s 25th year as one of Texas’ premier running and walking family events. The 2014 event, which will be capped at 6,000 participants, is both a family event and a serious running event, enticing for the competitive racer, weekend warrior, recreational runner, kids and walkers.
Proceeds benefit youth charities in Montgomery County including the South Montgomery County YMCA Partners Scholarship program. Other local charities that benefit from the run include Operation Graduation, Conroe ISD AFJROTC Program and the educational outreach programs at The Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion. In 2013, the event attracted over 5,700 participants and raised over $180,000 for the benefiting charities.
*Need Partners to assume the role as timers out on the course. The van with timers takes off when the race starts and then drops off the times at each mile marker. The timers have a stop watch and call out times to the runners as they pass by. The van will then follow the last runner and pick up the timers and return them back to The Pavilion, be at the start line at 7:30 am.
4 timers (Partners) for 5 Mile Race and 2 Timers (Partners) for 3 Mile Race.
Volunteers check in at 7:30 am; will be back at The Pavilion at 10:00 a.m. giving you plenty of time to plan your holiday festivities. If you are interested in helping sign up online or email [email protected] or by calling 281-210-1125. This is a fun event to volunteer for, so be sure to sign up today.
