35 Years! We are pleased to announce that The Bank of Fincastle Fall 5k and 10K run will be a live event this year. We want to thank everyone for their participation in our virtual event last year and look forward to seeing everyone in person again this fall.
Botetourt County Public Schools is a primary sponsor of the race and the Botetourt Rotary Club joins us again as a co-coordinator/sponsor/presenter of the race. The Bank of Fincastle will remain the Title Sponsor. We are excited to get more businesses/individuals involved in the race this year as well. We will have t-shirt sponsorships available for your logo or name to appear on the back of our shirt.
Where do the proceeds from the race go? The race is not designed as a fundraiser, but as an event to bring children and families from the community together for health and fitness. As part of the race, The Bank of Fincastle awards $2000 in scholarships to students from James River and Lord Botetourt. This year, we are continuing to offer shirt sponsorship so that more proceeds will be available to go to the Botetourt Rotary and the charities they choose. We have always kept our entry fees lower than most all races so that students and families can afford to participate. We will do the same this year.
Will we get swag? Yes! You will receive a custom long sleeve t-shirt. We will order youth medium and youth large shirts as well as all adult sizes again this year. Trophies will still be presented to the schools with the greatest number of participants and the greatest percentage of student's participating.
Where to we pick up our swag? Packet pick-up dates and location will be announced closer to the time of the event. Student packets for elementary and middle schools will be brought to the school and given to the school coach.
