Q: So what is the VALLEY 13.1 HALF MARATHON SERIES?
A: With the explosion of the half marathon distance taking place all over, we created a new series of 3 half marathons right here in the San Joaquin Valley. They include the inaugural Tiny Smiles "TINY" Half Marathon in Galt, the 7th annual Avenue of the Vines Half Marathon in Lodi and the 3rd annual St. Joseph's Half Marathon in Stockton.
Q: Why should I participate in these events?
A: The question should be...why wouldn't you! All 3 events are being put on or managed by Fleet Feet Stockton and On Your Mark Events! These 2 groups have come to be known as providing some seriously fun pre and post events. Things like custom tech shirts, custom tech vests, amazing post race food like wraps and breakfast burritos, custom wine glasses, wine and beer. And how about "KILLER" goodie bags and entertainment. On top of that, these events raise funds for great causes like the UC Davis Childens Hospital, the Emergency Food Bank & Family Services and the Boots to Books Scholarship Fund. By the end of 2013, these events combined will have donated over $100,000 to local charities.
Q: Will I get anything special for participating in all 3 events?
A: ABSOLUTELY! We've designed all 3 event medals to come together to form a giant medal that will need a centerpiece...guess who's giving you a commemorative 4th medal to complete your collection...That's right! Get 4 medals total for completing all 3 events. These medals will become the talk of your collection!
