While it’s not in person, the Holiday Cookie 5 & 10 starts today, https://runsignup.com/Race/NY/Rochester/HolidayCookie510. It’s a series of races for walkers and runners that offers up to four core races (5K, 5-Mile, 10K, and 10-mile) as well as a bonus marathon, with one-day and multi-day options, to be completed anytime from December 16-30, 2020.
You can even set up teams of 2+! Once four join, the price goes down and the first registrants get a small refund so they’ve all paid the same price for a given race event. Same thing happens if an eighth person joins.
Race any one or all of the races. (Marathon requires registration in another race.)
Earn a personalized medal for each race.
Each racer gets a winter hat, PowerGel, a holiday stocking, and discounts at PowerBar, Foot Kinetics, ROAD iD, and Cedar Swamp Soap Works.
Series racers get a hoodie (also available for purchase for those who want it, but not all the races) and a Prep and Recovery Kit including RunGoo, PowerGel, Epsoak, and more.
Each racer gets a Cookie Kit that grows with the number of races they do.
There are tons of prizes for participation in Facebook and survey challenges as well as simply entering your time in the results.
Prizes include $100 gift code to PowerBar, Hand-Crafted Soaps from Cedar Swamp Soap Works, goodies from Pretty in Posh with Rachel (Perfectly Posh Consultant Rachel Berardini), RunGoo by Foot Kinetics, stemless wineglass by Wear It Well by Angela, and training from Obatron Fitness.
Several racers will be selected for samples from Cedar Swamp Soap Works and Perfectly Posh Consultant Rachel Berardini, independent of participation in Earned Extras for chances of top tier prizes.
Teams will get scored for finishing performance for all races in which they have a racer and for participation in Earned Extras. A small prize will be awarded for the top performing team in each category.
The top male and female racer from each race will get recognition and a small token for their performances.
Members of clubs that use RunSignUp for their membership (ex. Greater Rochester Track Club (GRTC), Medved, Fleet Feet, Genesee Valley Harriers Running Club, Southern Tier Running Club, etc.) get 10% off.
