Join us for the 4th Annual Popsicle 5k Run this Saturday, Febryary 21, 2015 at Mocksville Elementary School on Cemetery Street in Mocksville. New and Improved with a certified course! All abilities are welcome! The route begins at Mocksville Elementary across from Rich Park and goes through downtown Mocksville.
The Davie Community Foundation’s Annual 5K “Popsicle” run was the inspiration for the cover of the July 2013 Reader’s Digest. Reason Number 28: “We Tell Cold Weather to Take a Hike. The Popsicle 5K in Davie County, North Carolina, an annual fundraiser for local youth projects, lives up to its chilly name. The race is held in February, and festivities include an ice-pop eating contest called the Brain Freeze Challenge.”
Come in your favorite wintery costume. The most crazy/creative Chilly costume will take home a prize!
Raffle – each registrant will receive a raffle ticket with their race number.
Brain Freeze Challenge- Eat a popsicle at the beginning, middle, and end of the race.
ZERO K- sign up the morning of the race if you are there to support a friend but do not want to run. You’ll get a t-shirt (up to the first 300) and coffee and not have to run an inch!
Fun Run- Kids (10 & under) there with a runner can participate in a short race after the 5K has finished.
Popsicle Palooza – Eat the most popsicles in 3 minutes to win the prize!
All proceeds from the Popsicle Run will support youth-led projects in Davie County! Organized under the Davie Community Foundation, the SURF (Students Understanding Real Futures) Board is a youth grant making organization for high school aged youth in Davie County. Each year SURF hosts a fundraiser to raise money to grant out in the spring. The proceeds from the Popsicle Run will serve to empower young people by supporting their projects through grants from SURF.
