40 Days to Miles for Meso


This year we have some surprizes in store. The 2011 Miles for Meso race distance has been changed to an 8K! It is a USATF certified course through the beautiful Boca Raton Spanish River Park, starting on A1A. Last year’s race kicked off as the sun came up over the Atlantic Ocean. You won’t want to miss that! This distance is currently the national standard for collegiate cross country races and not the usual length for our area. We thought we’d shake things up a bit in 2011. And for those of you not wanting to go the distance of an 8K, we’ve created a shorter route for you.

We’ve added a 4K Tribute Run/Walk for people wanting to participate but not run the new, full 8K. Last year we had a number of folks come out to run or walk the course in honor of a loved one lost to Mesothelioma. We certianly  want to promote more of that! Especially since our race proceeds are dedicated to giving more victims, like our own Race Director Larry Davis, a fighting chance against the horrible effects of asbestos exposure. The 4K goal is to get participants active and encourage everyone. So wear those photos, t-shirts, and ball caps in rememberance of your loved ones. This race is as much for them as it is for you and the victims of Meso we help in the future.

In addition to these races we’ve also added yet another distance. We are also introducing the 1 Mile Youth Run. Kids and young adults under the age of 18 can sign up to compete in this new 1 mile race.

Registration is now open online at www.AccuChipTiming.com or www.Active.com . The 1st 200 registrants received via www.AccuChipTiming.com will receive a free pair of Tri Sport sunglasses.

You can find race registration pamphlets at some of your favorite running stores as well, such as Runner’s Edge in Boca Raton and Running Wild in Fort Lauderdale.

The Miles for Meso timing structure as also been changed. This year’s timing tags will now be attached to your race bib and disposable! No more stopping at the end of your run to pull that little guy off your shoe before the next runner comes in behind you. But remember – you have to wear your timing tag and your race bib during the race or you risk disquailifcation.

Racers, one last note, we would also like to invite you to our Wine Tasting Welcome Party on Friday February 11th. Barefoot Wines has graciously agreed to toast to another successful race. The gathering will be at the Wishing Well Pub in Boca Raton beginning at 6pm. Pre-registered racers will be able to pick-up their race packets at this time.

We look forward to seeing you at our 2011 South Florida Miles for Meso event!

Believe in a Cure.
