Spring has sprung! The snow has melted and now is the perfect opportunity to sign up for the 7th Annual Circle Trot on Sunday, April 30th. The race starts at the PSU Ice Arena and Welcome Center at 9:30 a.m. Online registration ends April 20th, so hurry up to receive the early bird price. If you miss online registration, don’t panic, come before 8:45 a.m. and register the day of the race. This event is planned as a community-wide, inclusive fun run/ walk to benefit the Circle Program and promote healthy, active living in the company of friends, family and community members. Plymouth State University’s Center for Active Living and Healthy Communities is joining forces with the Bank of New Hampshire to sponsor this event. We are encouraging everyone to come and enjoy a day of fun.

For the more adv anced, competitive runner the 10K and 5K is the challenge you’re looking for. Those who like to walk can choose the 5K or 2K, all professionally timed. Everyone is encouraged to participate in the spirit of “Friends to the Finish” and walk or run together. Prizes will be awarded for fastest times in all distance divisions.

We also have a School Spirit Challenge that includes elementary schools from around New Hampshire participating in the race for a prize of $400. The school with the largest percentage of participants wins the cash prize, which will go towards their Health and Wellness programs. The remaining schools with 10% participation will be entered into a raffle. This includes gift cards from Wal-Mart and Piche’s Ski Shop, coupons from Olympia and a gift from the Plymouth State University bookstore. This will have three separate sponsors including Pike Industries, Plymouth General Dentistry, and the UPS store in Plymouth.

With the Circle Trot’s support the Circle Program will provide a residential summer camp and year-round mentoring experience for girls, ages 7-11 who are economically challenged. Girls and mentors benefit greatly from this partnership. The Circle girls are provided with a unique combination of adult and peer support delivered through the camp experience and through year-round activities with their volunteer mentors who come from throughout central NH. The program goal is to provide a supporting and positive environment while creating a lifelong community of friends.

Participation in the Circle Trot will provide a shining example of healthy, active living by all with the spirit of collaboration that is at the heart of the PSU motto “et prosim”. It is about being active as a community and contributing to the support of a truly worthwhile activity.

Volunteers are welcome for a variety of tasks: assisting with set up, route monitoring, on-site registration, information booths, clean up, etc. The event will start at 9:30 a.m. in front of the Ice Arena on Holderness Rd. and follow routes that can be viewed at the registration site www. signupgenius.com

So gather the troops and show up for a great day of fun and community service all in one. If you have any questions email circleevents@ circleprogram.org
