Due to the extreme flooding of Flint and with athlete safety as our utmost priority, we were forced with the difficult decision of delaying our Cinco de Mayo 10k/5k run on May 5, 2012. We have worked with the City of Flint and Swartz Creek Golf Course to reschedule the race for Friday May 11, 2012 at 6:30pm. We have chosen to host the event on Friday evening in an attempt to accommodate our athletes’ schedules by avoiding other run events taking place on Saturday as well as Mother’s day on Sunday.
After assessing the damage done by this local catastrophe we have decided to reopen registration with partial proceeds going to the Flint Tennis Club, a non-profit organization working to rehabilitate their facilities ruined by the flood. You may have seen the roof of their club house on our Facebook page, the rest of the building was below the water line and suffered significant water damage. It is our hope to give back to the Flint community which has now opened its arms twice to our event. We are incredibly grateful and hope this small gesture may help the Flint community move forward. Please invite your friends to the rescheduled event, enjoy a night of fun, and support the Flint community which is recovering from this unexpected phenomenon.
Due to these unforeseen incidents and the short time frame in which we are rescheduling the event, we will honor and implement our registration rollover policy. Thus three options are available to you:
