2016 Night Moves Race #3 - Event Details

Team NeighborLink is grateful you’ve decided to participate in Race #3 of the 2016 Night Moves Running Series. It takes a curious, self-motivated, and adventurous person to volunteer with NeighborLink Fort Wayne, and we’ve learned it takes those same traits to find our Team NeighborLink events exciting and worth trying. Night Moves will be all of the above with the right amount of security, direction, and organization to make sure every aspect that can be controlled, runs smoothly. 

Below are some final details about the event that should give you direction. If you have questions not being answered, send us an email and we’ll reply as soon as we can. Invite your friends to join you last minute. We still have some space available. 

Event Proceeds: 100% of the proceeds from this race will go to helping a neighbor named Arlinda who needs a new roof. The work is scheduled for next month, but we still need to raise funds for the supplies so all the proceeds from Friday’s race will offset the material costs for that project.

Check-In/Start Location: One Lucky Guitar has graciously welcomed us back again this year. We’ll meet up in the parking lot next to OLG. Please visit this area to check in, pay if you didn't online, sign our waiver, and grab your thank you gift.  

Pay Online: You may have signed up but didn’t pay online. You can pay the night of or you can take care of that online here

Event Timing: Check-In opens at 9:15 PM, Race Welcome & Final Instructions at 9:45 PM, and Race Starts at 10:00 PM

Bathrooms: There will be options within One Lucky Guitar

Sponsors: One Lucky Guitar is graciously letting us use their space as a venue for this run. Feel free to bring your own beverage!

Course Details: This course is unlike any we have done yet. We will be heading west toward Parkview field, around the old GE building, continuing south of the railroad tracks downtown, and then back up Calhoun St.

Headlamps: This course is pretty well lit and a headlamp isn't necessary, but if having one makes you feel more comfortable, please bring it. 

Course Marking & Direction: We will have over 20 volunteers/cyclists with flashing lights riding with the runners at every turn with flashlights pointing you in the right direction. You won't get too lost if you do get lost.  

Open Course: This course will be an open course, which means there will be cars and traffic to be aware of and be courteous to. Be aware of traffic and use your common sense when crossing streets just like you do when you run on your own. 

Timing & Results: We will have a mass start and a running stopwatch as a means to make sure the first male and female runners get an official time and we can determine a winner, but we won’t have a fancy timing system to keep your time for you. This is a fun run and not a competitive event. If timing is important to you, then I imagine you already have a running watch or GPS that will keep that for you. 

Winners: We have a fancy tape measure trophy for the winning Male and Female runners. Our goal with winner trophies is to give you a tool that you’ll actual use at home and/or on a NL project one day in the future. 

Parking: In the parking lot of One Lucky Guitar

Rain Policy: The forecast looks fantastic. If for some reason the event needs to be canceled due to weather, we will give each participant the opportunity take a refund, transfer to a different Night Moves date, apply it towards Team NL gear, or just let it be a donation to NeighborLink. 

June 24th Event Swag: We'll have Team NL Night Moves t-shirts, water bottles, and socks available. Runners will have their choice of one item. Everything will be for sale that night in case you want to purchase a different item. Everything will be $10 the night of the event - $12 online at other times. 

If you have any questions, please let us know. See you tomorrow night!
