For the past five years, Jim McCorkle of 5k Sports Race Management has timed the Lovell OHD 5k Run. With his support and guidance, the race has grown and is a favorite on the summer running circuit. Two major worries for all race directors, runner registration and accurate timing, are eliminated when using 5k Sports.
Jim's business has grown considerably and his weekends are filled setting-up finish lines throughout Maine, New Hampshire and Massachusetts. He also times a number of cross-country events for schools as well as nordic ski races in the winter. Jim believes that it is important to keep costs down and help local races make money, which usually are organized to raise funds for charities. And it has always been my goal to keep the entry fees affordable for everyone while at the same time to make as much money as possible for the Parade and Lovell Recreation Department.
5k Sports has designed and implemented their own on-line registration system which Lovell OHD 5k will be using in 2012. Now, here's the offer: Take the survey that can be found on 5k Sport's home page and Jim will pay your registration fee for next year.
Now, that seems to me to be a great gift during this holiday season! But hurry--don't know when this offer will end.
