Pre-Registration & Shirt/Hat Sales Feb 15

With the outpouring of interest in the Jillie Jog - The Road to Remission 5k Run/Walk, we have scheduled a date for pre-registration, to pick up your event bibs and an opportunity to buy Jillie Jog shirts and hats before the day of the event.

We will hold pre-registration at our house, 339 N. Humbolt St (3 houses north of Humbolt Elementary) Friday, February 15 from 4:00pm to 6:00pm.

Those that have mailed in registration forms will be able to pick up their event numbers. For anyone that has not registered yet, you can come and register early.

We will also start selling the hats and shirts during pre-registration. There are only approximately 30 hats available and limited numbers of shirts in a variety of mens and women's sizes. Once the shirts are gone, they're gone! So make sure to come Friday to get the size you want.

Registration, packet pick up and shirt & hat sales will still be available the day of the race. However, shirts and hats will be the sizes and styles remaining from the evening before.
