Hello Resolution Run Participants!
Thank you for your participation in the 2021 Resolution Run! The in-person event was a true success and we couldn’t be more delighted by how it all turned out and we hope to see you again in 2022! There are a few important closing notes regarding covid, sponsors, awards, event pictures, and upcoming events. Please review and email me if you have any question.
COVID: To the participants who followed the covid protocols to ensure a safe in-person event, thank you! Not only does your follow-through keep current participants safe, but it also helps with proposing future events to the involved entities (cities, counties, police department, etc.). Without your cooperation, we wouldn’t be able to even think about hosting other live events – again, thank you!
SPONSORS: A humble request to support the Resolution Run sponsors if and when you are able. In full transparency, it takes around 220 runners to financially break even for the Resolution Run, and we had 180 (you can do the math). However, our amazing list of sponsors included Wintzer Acupuncture, Athletes Corner, Generation Homes Northwest, American Marble & Granite, Whisper Running, Seton Catholic Prep, Best Western Plus of Battle Ground, Honey Stinger, Blossom Natural Health and Wellness, The Old Spaghetti Factory, and Waste Connections, all played an essential role in raising funds for the nonprofit, Whisper Community – $3,719.90! Thankfully, we can use 100% of those funds to support youth running-related programs in the Clark County area!
AWARDS: Virtual participants should have received their medals by now. In-person participant age bracket winners, if you picked up a Lava Lamp without a cap, please email me. I’m embarrassed to admit, but when I was placing the finisher and sponsor stickers on the lamps, a cap remained on my desk. My bad. Shoot me an email and I’ll send the remainder of your lamp to your home this week.
PHOTOS: Our photographer for the Res Run is a family friend who was volunteered by a volunteer (his lovely wife). I am grateful he stepped in at the last minute to take pictures of the start and finish, which you can find on the Resolution Run page at whisperrunning.com/resolutionrun. The images can be found in the video at the top of the page.
EVENTS: By now, I had hoped to have more information about our next event, Lake to Bay, which is a 62.37-mile relay race through Clark County. We should have more information about this event in the coming weeks, so please visit our page in the coming days at whisperrunning.com/laketobay for event details. Once the event logistics are in place and the website has been updated, an email will head your way!
If you have any questions, feel free to send me an email to email@example.com.
