Flyer, information and entry form for the Easter 5K Run to the Cross April 19, 2014 at Taylorsville United Methodist Church

Flyer, information and entry form for the Easter 5K Run to the Cross April 19, 2014 at Taylorsville United Methodist Church

According to information from the Taylorsville United Methodist Church website, the first ever ‘Run to the Cross’ will take place this Saturday in Taylorsville, Carroll County, Maryland.

If you are looking to get outside after a long-cold winter of being cooped-up inside, this is a great family event for everyone to enjoy – and celebrate spring and Easter. And oh, was it mentioned that there will also be great food available - pulled pork sandwiches. And all the proceeds go to several good causes…

The 5 K run will go from South Carroll High School to Taylorsville United Methodist Church on Saturday, April 19, 2014 at 10:00 a.m. (TUMC). (You can run this or walk this 5 K.)

This 5 K run will travel west on Route 26, cross Route 27 (with State Police help) and travel south on Route 27 to TUMC.

At the end of the race enjoy live music, pulled pork sandwiches (free for runners) and the final awards ceremony.

This run is a joint venture brought to you by TUMC and SCHS’s Fellowship of Christian Athletes. (FCA)

Proceeds will be given to both the FCA and the No More Malaria Campaign. (Every 60 seconds a child dies in Africa of Malaria. This campaign has already cut that number in half, we want to stop deaths from malaria.) Your entry fee will be tax deductible.

There are two ways to register: One is to download the run entry form, fill it out, and mail it back to TUMC along with a check. Please register by April 6th. The registration fee is $10 for students; $15 for SCHS Alum; and $20 for adults.

The second way to register is to click below. Make sure you have a credit card ready and you can register totally on line.

Note there is a 2-4 dollar increase to offset on-line costs.
