Thompson Tiger Roar 5K Registration Now Open

Mar 08, 2016 07:01PM ● By Steven Jack

This year's Tiger Roar logo was created by Thompson sixth-grader Kendall Sackmann.

It’s that time of the year again for the fourth annual 5k run/walk and mile fun run: The Tiger Roar.
 
This year’s event will take place Saturday, April 23, and will be a joint effort between the Thompson Athletic Department and PE Department.  The Tiger Roar was created to advocate for healthy lifestyles.  There will be a “goodie bag,” filled with items from race sponsors, along with a t-shirt to commemorate the event.  

Awards will be given to the top overall 
male and female runners – including a gift certificate to Road Runner Sports in Naperville for a new pair of running shoes.  Ribbons will be awarded to the top male and female runner in each category.

It is $20 to participate in the fun run/walk, and $30 to participate in the 5k run/walk.

Race start times:
  • 1 Mile Fun Run/Walk – 8:30 AM
  • 5k Run/Walk – 9:15 AM
  • Race Day Registration: 7:30-8:30 AM

Race packet pick-up will take place on Thursday, April 21st from 4:00-8:00 PM at Road Runner Sports 2555 E 75th St Naperville. To be guaranteed a t-shirt and avoid late registration fees, register  by  April 1.
