The Race to the Pantry is a fundraiser for the Community Resource and Recreation Center (CRRC) food pantry located in Canyon Lake, Texas. Last year 8,717 people were provided food assistance. In just the month of March this year when the pandemic shut everything down, 934 individuals were helped, the biggest month ever.
This is the 5th Annual Race to the Pantry and due to COVID-19, in order to keep everyone as safe as possible, we will conduct this event virtually. Next year we are planning on returning to the in person version as were the first four years.
In order to support the CRRC food pantry, our virtual event can be run or walked at your convenience anytime between December 12th and December 19th. Participants can complete your chosen distance anywhere you choose, on a track, on trails, a treadmill or at your local fitness center. Stepmaster 5k anyone? You can choose the degree of difficulty that fits your personal fitness level.
$30.00 for all events
1 Mile walk/run
All entries are eligible for the 25,000 SWA miles. This year all entries are eligible for the drawing. The fee is the same for everyone.
Since the event this year will be virtual, no overall or age group awards will be offered.
HOWEVER, ALL PAID ENTRIES, will be eligible for a drawing to win 25,000 Southwest Airline travel miles that can be used anytime until December 19, 2021. Perhaps the winner will be a virtual entry from the East or West Coast who would want to use the miles to attend the in person race in December 2021. Just a thought. Make sure all of your information is complete so we can be sure to contact the drawing winner.
All entries will receive a finishers medal and a T-Shirt commerorating this what we hope is a once in a lifetime activity. The shirts and medals will be mailed to all paid entries as soon as possible but hopefully within 2 weeks of the race.
