Who can sign up for the 5K/10K Run? How about the Junior's?
Healthy males over the age of 16 can sign up for the 5K or 10K. The Junior Run is for boys in Grades 4-7 (sorry, no ladies or girls at this time - we hope to plan a women/girl's run in the near future)
I'm kinda out of shape... do I have to run?
Of course not! You can walk, skip, shuffle... whatever it takes... just remember it's for a great cause!
What is the actual start point of the Run?
Registration will be at the Far Rockaway Boardwalk on Beach 73rd Street
Will there be parking?
Yes, parking will be available at the shops across from the Boardwalk at Registration. Specific instructions will be sent to participants prior to the event
Can my family attend the post Run Barbeque?
Yes! Just make sure to let us know how many people you'll be bringing when you register
This all sounds great but I'm just not available that day... can I still help?
Sure! You can still either donate or sign up to be a volunteer at achiezer.org
Can fathers and sons run together?
For the safety of the runners, the juniors will be running in a different direction (they will however be starting from the same starting point on the Boardwalk). No worries, there will be plenty of father/son bonding time at the barbecue/concert!
