Run to Remember 2007


Who: Calling All Hashers!

What: Run to Remember 5K – Beverage Station

When: Saturday, May 5th, 2007. Report at 6:00 a.m. (okay, I’ll accept hash time from some of you …..), but the Race starts at 8:00 a.m., and it’s only a 5K. The first runners will reach us about 7 1/2 or 8 minutes after the gun. So we have to be ready, and have enough liquid refreshment poured for up to 2,500 participants.

Where: First, go to Gold Star Families Memorial & Park, immediately east of Soldier Field. Parking will be free at the Soldier Field Waldron Deck (i.e. the parking structure just south of Soldier Field). Report to the Volunteer Check-in Tent. Get checked in, and get your volunteer t-shirt (a keepsake you will treasure for years to come….) Stash your volunteer t-shirt somewhere, and put on your hash shirts.

From there you will go to Monroe Harbor, at (duh) Monroe Street). We will set up just south of the Yacht Club. where the runners will pass us heading south on the concrete path along the water.

Why: Because the Cops love us (for some reason….).

Start your Cinco de Mayo off right – with Cervesa! We need a few able-bodied men and women to help the hashers who have already signed up Since I can’t find any, I’m asking for more hashers….. We will pour Smart Water and ….. “smarter water”….. to serve the runners and protect them from de-hydration. Yes, that’s our job – “to serve and protect”….

This is a great opportunity to promote the Hash to the men and women in blue, and let them know that “we aren’t all that bad, either”… (Thanks, Mount Me….)

Really, the cops love us and really want us there. They consider us part of the event…..
