In addition to lacing up for a good caused this year runners are encouraged to “Layer Up and Leave It” by bringing a new or gently used coat, hat and gloves to donate as they run along the race route.

“Runners will layer up with these items as they start the race and then leave items at designated points along the race route,” said Alane Zannotti, race coordinator and Director of Community Development and Extension. “The Foundation has partnered with Meridian’s student organizations to arrange the donation of these items to agencies throughout the Meridian district to help keep residents warm during the winter months. With this new element runners and Meridian students have a chance to make a positive impact.”

Now in its fourth year, the Blue Streak run is a great way to make a difference in the life of a Meridian student, and it offers something for everyone regardless of his or her skill level. The 1-mile fun run will begin at 8:30 a.m. and the 5k and 10k will start at 9 a.m. All races will begin and end on Meridian’s campus. The race is certified through USA Track & Field and awards will be given based on age group categories.

Representatives from Run With It, a Stillwater specialty running store, will have an information and product booth set up at the race site.
