Did you resolve to save money AND run a 5k in 2016? Now’s your chance to do both at the same time. On January 1, 2016, DART will be sponsoring the fifth annual Tightwad 5K. The price is — you guessed it, free!
This will be a no-frills event. No road closures, no tents, no commercial sponsors. Just you and 39 running buddies, all competing to be the Numero Uno Tightwad. The race will start at the Davidson Town Green, Concord and Main St., and will follow the Run for Green 5K course.
Best of all, you will get an official result, courtesy of Davidson Timing. Manual timing, not chipped, so be sure to wear your bib number on your front. After all, this isn’t a rodeo!
The route will be through the neighborhoods and greenways of Davidson. Click here for a map of the course.
We’re limiting the event to 40 entrants, so make sure you sign up fast! If you don’t make the 40-runner cutoff, you’re more than welcome to run as a bandit. After all, it’s free!
Don’t want to run but still want to be part of the fun? How about volunteering? Runners will get no awards, but all volunteers will get their choice of a coffee mug or running socks.
