RUN INSPIRED 10K for Operation Warm Boasts Beautiful Course, Great Cause
By Lauren Holloway, Public Relations/Media Coordinator at Operation Warm
RUN INSPIRED 10K, presented by Operation Warm Coats for Kids Foundation and M&T Bank, is the first run of its kind to take place throughout the grounds of the world-renowned Winterthur estate and museum. The race uncovers the sprawling scenery of the Winterthur property featuring beautiful gardens, enchanted woods, rolling hills, streams, meadows, forests and one of the largest mansions in the country.
The course is USATF-certified and consists of paved hilly pathways that lace and intertwine through Winterthur’s scenic garden and forests.
After the race, Operation Warm will hold a one-of-a-kind finisher’s party featuring live music, food trucks, a beer garden, various vendors and exhibitors, as well as family-friendly activities – open to both runners and spectators. Food trucks for this years event include Outlandish Food Truck, I Don’t Give a Fork, Mojo Loco and more.
Each pre-registered runner will receive a performance tech race shirt, a stylish finishers medal, refreshing beer at the Finishers Party and delectable post-race snacks. Prizes will be given to the 1st, 2nd, 3rd overall finishers; awards will be given to the 1st, 2nd, 3rd overall finishers in both male and female age groups, as well as the most inspiring team – the team or individual who raises the most money.
In addition to beautiful scenery and a lively finishers party, each registration fee includes a donation to Operation Warm, which provides a brand-new coat to a child in need. Operation Warm works directly with manufacturers to create a line of carefully crafted winter coats made just for kids in a wide variety of styles and colors. Not only do these coats keep children warm, they serve to improve self-confidence, peer acceptance, school attendance and overall wellness.
