36 Years! We are pleased to announce that First Bank Fall 5k and 10K run will continue in 2022. Online registrations will be open June 1, 2022
The Botetourt Rotary Club joins us again as a presenter of the race and Botetourt County Public Schools is a primary sponsor of the race. First Bank will remain the title sponsor. We are excited to invite more local businesses and individuals to become 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, First Bank and the Botetourt Rotary Club 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.
How do I volunteer on race day and receive a free race shirt? Adults 18 and older may volunteer. Visit the 2022 First Bank Fall Run Volunteer registration page here!
