Burlington Day 5K
May 20, 2017
Sponsored by Third State Brewing
What a beautiful day Saturday turned out to be! The week before the race we were losing sleep and stressing about every last-minute detail.
Was the swag going to arrive in time? When were we going to mark the course and of course every race’s worry…what about the weather?!? It all
seems so trivial at this point as we look back at what a wonderful event we had and all the amazing people that came out to support Burlington Day 5K.
Seeing all the fantastic photos of over 300 runners running through our beautiful city of Burlington simply brings us pure joy!
We are full of gratitude for all our volunteers out on the course, running registration/ packet pick-up, leading the race on bike, taking photographs,
sweeping the course after, cleaning up and so much more. The day ran smoothly because of all your efforts!
A heartfelt thank you to the Police, Fire Fighters, EMS for making sure that all of our runners and spectators were safe on our streets of
Burlington. We truly appreciate all that you do, day in and day out and cannot thank you enough for supporting our 5K.
Thank you to all of our sponsors for supporting our 5K, Burlington Running Club and Sheltered Yoga. Without all of you, our event would not
have been such a success. We were able to raise money to benefit Sheltered Yoga a 501(c)3 in Burlington County that brings mental health and
wellness programming to disadvantaged communities and individuals in Burlington and beyond. Thank you, Sheltered Yoga, for a great warm-up and
for all you do for our community!
Thank you to the Burlington YMCA for hosting our water stop, Stinsman Photography for all the amazing photographs, Brick Wall for allowing runners
to use your facilities, Hope Steam Fire Company for use of your station, DJ Joey Hayes for the awesome beats, Burlington Main Street and the Chamber
of Commerce for the swag bags, Legends Pizza and Tap for the post-race food and most of all Third State Brewing for being the race’s and Burlington
Running Club’s biggest supporter!
I am richer for the experience of being part of Burlington Running Club and this City. In a few short months, members of Burlington Running Club have
grown from acquaintances to family. It was amazing to see all your friendly faces out there on the course and I am so thankful for you all.
I am even richer to be surrounded by the amazing group of people which included so many of my family, friends, and students that joined us for the
Burlington Day 5K. I personally want to thank each of you for your efforts. Thank you for spending your Saturday morning with us. Thank you for
being there to celebrate our first race! We hope that you will become part of our running family and join us for our weekly club runs and of course
join us again next year for our Burlington Day 5K!
With love and gratitude,
