Participants sought for Race For Trace 5K

July 26, 2011

The inaugural Race For Trace 5K, staged in memory of cyclist Tracey Kleinpell, has been scheduled for Saturday, Aug. 6 at the Sanibel Beach Place Shopping Center, located at 20321 Summerlin Road in Fort Myers.

Runners — including race walkers and stroller-pushing competitors — will take off at 7 a.m. southbound, towards Bunche Beach on John Morris Road before turning around at the cul-de-sac for the final sprint towards the finish line back at Sanibel Beach Place.

To honor Kleinpell, who was struck and killed by a motorist while riding her bicycle across the Sanibel Causeway on May 7, 2011, a group of friends and fellow biking/running enthusiasts thought that an athletic event of this sort would provide a positive legacy that would also benefit Florida Diabetes Camp. Kleinpell worked as a diabetes educator.

In addition to the 5K race, a Kiddie Fun Run will begin after all of the participants have finished. There will also be a Zumba class and Health Fair following the race.

Pre-registration pricing for the 5K is available on or before Friday, Aug. 5, and is $30 for adults and $15 for youth (18 and under). Race day registrationfor the 5K is $40 for all ages. The Kiddie K is by donation only. All registrations are non-transferable and non-refundable.

Registration options include:

• Online at until Aug. 5 at 5 p.m.

• In person at packet pickup this Saturday, July 30 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Run Florida, located at 13101 McGregor Blvd. in Fort Myers.

• On race day (Aug. 6) at Sanibel Beach Place from 6 to 6:45 a.m.
