20th Anniversary Coyote Chase Race scheduled for Nov. 23

November 18, 2013 by Jennifer Retter

Event Date: 
Sat, 11/23/2013 - 9:00am

Weatherford College officials are gearing up for another Coyote Chase Race Saturday, Nov. 23, and it’s a big one – the 20th anniversary of the popular 5K and 1-mile timed race. The Weatherford College Foundation hosts the race as a fundraiser for its scholarship program.
This year’s race will impact even more college students with scholarships, since every dollar raised will be matched by a Title III grant from the U.S. Department of Education.
Elementary schools are invited to participate in the annual “School Challenge” and are encouraged to bring as many students, family members, teachers and friends to compete for trophies and recognition. The school bringing the most runners will win a large trophy and bragging rights for the next year.
“It’s a tradition for many of our area runners, especially the elementary schools, to run the Coyote Chase Race,” said Brent Baker, race director. “We have runners of all ages competing, and we always have a good time.”
Online registration is available at www.coyotechaserace.com. RunTime Racing Services will handle the event’s timing and course layout.
First Financial Bank will provide trophies for overall finishers, medals for the top three finishers in more than 40 age categories, and ribbons for all children 12 and under. All runners will receive a Coyote Chase Race T-shirt and other goodies.
Registration is $20 per runner through Nov. 22; race day registration is $25. Children 12 and under are $15, no matter when they register. The 1-mile run will begin at 9 a.m., and the 5K will start at 9:30 a.m.
While waiting for race results to come in, participants can enjoy food from Rosa’s Café, entertainment and bounce houses.
For those pre-registered, early packet pick-up is scheduled Friday, Nov. 22, 8:30 a.m.-4 p.m. in the WC Mince Administration Building. On race day, registration and packet pick-up is scheduled from 7:30 to 9:30 a.m. in the Mince Building.
