Lennar Corporation and Corrigan Sports Enterprises (CSE) announced today the second annual St. Charles Running Festival Presented by Lennarwill take place on April 14, 2012. The festival will consist of three different distances (10 miles, 5k and a kids fun run) and proceeds from the event will benefit local charities, including Special Olympics.
“Lennar is proud to continue our association with this great event,” said Jonathan Tepper, Regional Director of Sales and Marketing for Lennar. “With a day full of fun events, supporting local youth sports and charities, it is a great showcase for the many positive things that are happening in St. Charles.”
The festival will lead runners throughout the roads of Charles County with Regency Furniture Stadium serving as the focal point. The preliminary design of the scenic and mostly flat 10-mile course has runners starting at Regency Furniture Stadium, then proceeding north up Piney Church Road, west on Billingsley Road, and south on St. Charles Parkway. The second half of the race continues south on Radio Station Road, east on to La Plata Rd, then back on to Piney Church Road once again before finishing outside of the stadium.
The 5k course starts and finishes at the stadium and is a basic up and back loop on Piney Church Rd. The Chick-fil-A Kids Fun Run will be contained within the parking lots of the stadium. The day’s events coincide with the annual Fan Fest celebration hosted by the Southern Maryland Blue Crabs.
Entry fees for the three races are $55 for the 10-Miler, $20 for the 5K and $10 for the Kids Fun Run prior to March 1. After that the 10-Miler fees increase to $65 and the 5K increases to $30. For more information or to register visit www.stcharlesrunfest.com or call 410.605.9381.
