Andalé Andalé, Arriba Arriba 5K Trail Race – One Mile

Sunday, May 15th – Andalé Andalé, Arriba Arriba 5K Trail Race – Children’s One Mile – This will be the first race I have ever put on myself. This will serve as the introduction to the Andalé Racing Club and the new way to race we are going to build here in the Midwest. I’m going to make mistakes. Things won’t go perfect but life isn’t perfect. I can promise a unique experience, lots of fun, and good memories. This is a race for the whole family but not with strollers because it’s going to be hard. I promise you that.

This Race Includes

A well-marked course with two aid stations.
Photography, and race bibs.

T-Shirt

It’s a shirt, that my wife and I will probably use her cricket and make all of them ourselves. It’s not going to be anything incredible but it will be hand made with love. Hopefully we have enough but if we run out, we will take your name down, I’ll try not to forget, and will make you another one.

Finishers

Again, if you like the Blue Springs Running Club and you ever ran a race that was put on by Lou Joline, then you know the finishing medals were amazing. I mean he usually made them himself. Fantastic. A very similar vibe here.
I will give out an original award for the top three overall men and women in the 5K.

The kids will each get a unique finishing prize as well.

Course

A challenging loop course on grassy, hilly trail. “
