Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC), along with the family and friends of the late Carlene Hall, present the third annual "Paint the Streets 5k & Carlene Hall Memorial Mile" on Saturday, July 28 2012, at 7am to benefit spinal cord injury services at United Cerebral Palsy of Huntsville & Tennessee Valley, Inc. (UCP). The race was created by family and frinds of Carlene Hall, an amazing woman who displayed uncommon faith and courage in the face of a debilitating spinal cord injury, to honor Carlene and to enhance spinal cord injury services for others in our community. Read more about Carlene Hall.
Directed by Team Rocket Tri Club, the Paint the Streets 5k begins at 7 a.m. at SAIC and continues through Research Park. The CERTIFIED COURSE is FLAT and FAST with no appreciable hills. There are two aid stations that will have water and Gatorade (located at approximately miles 1 and 2). Water and Gatorade will also be available at the Start/Finish area along with post-race food. View the Course Maps.
The 5k includes a Challenged Athlete Division.
The Carlene Hall Memorial Mile is a 1 mile walk designed to provide a forum where everyone can participate. The course is the same as the 5k course except you turn around at the 0.5 mile mark. The walk map can be viewed here.
Awards will be given to the overall winners, 1 deep, for Male/Female and Masters Male/Female, as well the top finishers in each age group.
This year we are offering a Team Competition. Each participant must register and enter their team name and the name of the team captain so we are sure who is on each team. Teams can be male, female, mixed and militiary; and must consist of 3 to 5 people. The lowest 3 times will be added to determine rank. Prized will be given to the top three winners in each category.
