December 2, Sunday, 8:30am-10:30am
Race starts: 7:00am
VolunCheer schedule: 8:30am – 10:30am
Shopping to Educate” & The California International Marathon are working together to help bring the opportunity for participating schools to gain points as well as earn money.
By participating in the CIM Marathon: Our school can gain 10,000 points for creating a relay team that completes the race or by volunteering to cheer on December 2nd from 8:30-10:30am our school can raise $250.
Relay Exchange Teams:
Pony Express can participate for FREE in the CIM’s Relay Challenge. Teams will consist of 2, 3, or 4 representatives from our school, and together teams complete the full marathon distance with each runner completing a leg of 5.7-7.3 miles (distances vary on each leg). The entry fee will be waived for 1 team per school by CIM and schools who participate in the challenge will be awarded 10,000 bonus points in the Shopping to Educate program.
Another way for us to get involved in this event, is by gathering a group of 25 or more students, parents, or faculty from your school to cheer on the participants of the marathon.
Voluncheer groups will be cheering on the runners between the 17 and 18 mile markers of the CIM on Fair Oaks Boulevard between Mission Avenue and Arden Hills Lane from 8:30am-10:30am on Sunday, December 2nd.
Noise makers will be provided for each team, but groups are encouraged to bring signs, horns and a loud cheering voice to keep the marathon runners motivated!
Each school that participates with at least 25 voluncheers will be awarded a $250 donation from the CIM. There will be a limit of one voluncheer group per school in the Shopping to Educate Program.
We would love to have you there with us to create a fun experience for Pony Express.
If you would like to run for FREE in this prestigious race or help Pony Express at the cheering section, contact Jennifer Fischetti at 530-415-8608 or orchid_74 at hotmail.com.
