The Getzelmania 5K is a yearly fund-raising fun run, sponsored by The Bridge Community Church of Morrisville, NC for the family of Stephen Getzelmann. Stephen died suddenly from a Strep-B infection in December of 2011.
This is the Church’s way of giving back and supporting his family. Proceeds from this event will go towards the Comfort Zone Camp (www.comfortzonecamp.org), a bereavement camp for children who have experienced the death of a parent, sibling, or primary care giver.
The race, which was held in May of last year, had 180 participants.
The 5K will begin at 9:00 am, while the 1-mile run/walk will start at 10:15. The 5K course has been certified and is an out and back with two water stations provided along the way.
The entry fee for the 5k is $25 ($30 after October 17th). The fee for the mile is $10. The entry fee includes a t-shirt - guaranteed for all those who register by Oct 13th.
Race day registration will be available, though t-shirts will be on a first-come, first-served basis.
In the 5K awards will be presented to the first three males overall, the first three females overall, and to the top finisher in each of the following age groups (both sexes): 19-under, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60-69, and 70 - over.
Pre-registered entrants can pick up their packets and late entrants can register either on Friday, Nov. 1 from 3- 7 pm at Omega Sports in Morrisville or on race day at the start/finish beginning at 7:45 am. Omega Sports is located at 3025 Market Center Drive in Morrisville. In addition to the two runs, there will be activities for the entire family including face painting and a bounce house.
