Father's Day Weekend
Saturday, June 15, 2013 8:00 AM
Beverly Shores, Indiana
Join us Saturday, June 15 (Father’s Day Weekend) for the 6th annual Necktie 5K
Walk & Run. As the name implies, all participants are encouraged to wear
neckties during the run in recognition of fathers everywhere! Prizes will be awarded
to participants with the most-creative neckties. This is the perfect opportunity to
spend quality time with your dad and enjoy beautiful views of Lake Michigan.
All pre-registered participants receive a commemorative race number and official
race shirt. T-Shirts are short-sleeved and unisex-sized; available in Kid's Small -
Adult XXL. Refreshments (including bottled Gatorade and Angie’s famous peanut
butter sandwiches) will be provided to participants after the run.
The top three finishers in each age group will receive a novelty necktie. Also,
awards will be given to the first father-son and first father-daughter teams to cross
the finish line together.
Yoga on the Beach *New in 2013*
Join us immediately after the 5K awards ceremony for 30 minutes of gentle yoga
on the beach! It is the perfect post-race stretch. A beach towel is encouraged, but
not required. The class is free and will be lead by Amanda Freymann from East
Wind Studios in Chesterton (and resident of Beverly Shores). It will be geared
toward 'beginners'. Everyone is welcome, if you participate in the race or not!
This year we will again have a Kid's Sprint. The
Sprint will take place at 7:45 AM (before the 5K)
near the registration tables. It is free! Registration
is not require. The Sprint is open to ages 8 and
