Five and Dime FIFTEEN miler (&10k fun run)- a trail run coming November 12, 2016

November 12, 2016. Saturday.        MORGANTOWN, WV 
FIVE AND DIME 15 miler & 10k. (15.2 & 6.2 miles to be exact) A laid-back fall fun run. 
AWARD: everyone gets the race's custom MASON JAR
WINNERS (one male, one female) each get a gold mason jar!
($10 for 10k) $15 if registered by Oct 14, then $20. No race day registration. The fee is to hold your spot in the race. On the registration site, you can opt to GET THE $10/$15 BACK after completing the race! :) Or you can choose not to get it back, and it will be a donation to cover snacks and awards. Thanks! (We want to keep it simple and cheap, but have witnessed that many people don't show up for free events they signed up for if it rains, etc. And that leaves no room for those who still want to run.) No refunds for no shows. 
Volunteers: You also get a mason jar. To volunteer, or for other questions,  email by Nov 6. 

START: 8:00 am at Mellon Chapel Parking Area     CUTOFF: 12:00 pm
DIRECTIONS: from 3708 Earl L Core Rd, turn right onto Beulah Rd. Turn left into the parking area when you see Mellon Chapel (of Grace Bible Church) on the left. 
NOTE: There are no restrooms at the start or aid station. Hit the gas station before you arrive. (Sorry for the inconvenience. This may be a deal breaker...I understand.) Then again, you could always use your mason jar...
The trail is fine, crushed stone. It will be an open course and may have pedestrians and bikers. The course is uphill to the turnaround and then downhill all the way back!!!
TURNAROUND: The start is at mile 5.9 and the turnaround is at the Masontown parking lot (MILE 13.5). 
Water and light snacks will be at the halfway point (the only aid station/timing checkpoint). No drop bags, so carry what you need or have a friend meet you at the turnaround. 
There will be volunteers making sure that you made it to the turnaround point. After all, no one runs 15 miles in 40 minutes. :)
10k TURNAROUND: We (RD included) will run out 3.1 and back 3.1. The turnaround is the permanent wooden 9 mile marker. Afterwards, we will wait for the 15 miler-ers and cheer them on!
Keep track of your own time & record it at the finish (for 10k)!

Low-key, no frills, no complaints event. Water, light snacks and fruit provided at the FINISH. Feel free to bring food and drinks for yourself or the group (no alcoholic beverages permitted).
Parking may be limited, so come early. Old school timing with humans and clipboards-no chips or computers needed! 

LIMIT- 50 runners only. Sign up quickly. The goal ain't money or fame. We are keeping it little and local. Come ready to make friends!
Registration is on starting September 13!
