Dear Neighbor:

Butler University is proud to host the 32nd annual Dick Lugar Community Run & Walk on Saturday, Sept. 18, 2010, beginning with registration at 6:45 a.m. The event includes a 5K run, a 5K race walk/fitness walk and a 10K run as well as a health and fitness fair at the Butler University Health and Recreation Complex (HRC) from 7-11 a.m. that is free and open to the public.

To keep you informed, we wanted to share with you a copy of the course for the events, which is on the back of this letter, and the general start times. The events schedule is as follows:

6:45-8:15 a.m. Registration/packet pickup in the Health and Recreation Complex
7:45 a.m. 10 K run begins outside Hinkle Fieldhouse
8:15 a.m. 5K run begins
8:20 a.m. 5K race walk and fitness walk begins
8:50 a.m. CYO 3K run begins
9:45 a.m. Awards ceremony

As in the past, some roads will be temporarily blocked off as the race goes through. All roads that are closed will reopen immediately after the last participant in the category has passed through. All roads should be back to full function no later than 10 a.m.

We invite our neighbors to participate in the run and the health fair. The Indiana Pacers’ Fan Van will be there, Butler’s HRC will do activities for kids from 8:15-9:30 in one of its multi-purpose rooms and Butler’s College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences will be offering blood pressure screenings and wallet cards for tracking medications.

We thank you for your understanding and cooperation. Should you have any questions or concerns, contact me at the numbers below, or the race coordinator, Don Carr of Tuxedo Brothers, at (317) 733-3300. The emergency number the day of the race is (317) 340-1115.
