Exciting Pi(e) news about the Vac & Dash Lucky Leprechaun 5K to be held Sunday March 14th at 3:00 pm
First and foremost, at the Vac & Dash races, we strive hard to put on a first class race.  The course for tomorrow is fast, very well marked with signs and members of the Stanly County Amateur Radio Club will be monitoring the turns.  Charles from Excite Bikes will be leading the way on his bike.

Also, the course goes through a neighborhood with 4-way intersections.  Be very careful when you cross the roads.  Donna and Bill Moss will handle the water station at the stretch of road that run down and back on.  When you get to the water station, turn around.

Secondly, at Vac & Dash we like to have a fun atmosphere around the event.  Earlier today, when Ritchie Hearne stopped by to get his race packet, he said, did you realize race day is also Pi Day.  I had forgot.  I immediately sprung into action, walked across the street the the Sweet Shop and purchased 6 Pies for prizes for tomorrow. 

Since Pi is 3.145926535 I decided to give a Sweet Shop pie to participants that come in the following places:  31st - 41st - 59th - 26th - 53rd & 5th place.

We have plenty of door prizes, plus a free Flow Yoga Class will begin at 1:45

Whitney Walter Schadt of Flow Yoga Locust will host a free 30-minute Flow Yoga Class at the Start/Finish Line.

Plus - Vac & Dash will have items from our store available for sale at the race.  All Aftershokz Headphones are $10.00 off.

Plus, you can register for the May 8th 17th Annual Beach Blast 5K in Albemarle for only $17.00!

In addition you can sign up for the Vac & Dash Easter Eggstravaganza for $25.00 as Registration goes to $30.00 on Monday.  If you want  to run in the Vac & Dash Red Carpet 5K, you can register for that also for $25.00.  If you register for both races, total cost will be $40.00.

See you tomorrow.  Looks like it's going to be a great day to run a 5K.
