Here are the choices if you are interested in supporting the Filipinotown 5k this Saturday, August 6th in downtown LA. Let me know if you have any questions! Please let me know which you will be doing so I can add you to the list of volunteers. We plan to meet up after the race for lunch (Philippe's?)
1) Actually running the race: http://www.active.com/running/los-angeles-ca/historic-filipinotown-5k-runwalk-2011
Here is the website to register. There is also race day registration. Please let me know if you plan to be there so we'll look for you during the race!
2) Only volunteering: Please let me know if you plan to volunteer instead of running the race. Meet us at the start line (1925 W. Temple St. Los Angeles, CA) at 6:45am and everyone will be assigned their volunteer spot. If I'm not around yet, look for Dino from ARC and let them know you are with my group.
3) Running to the start line from Pasadena and then volunteering: For this we'll Park on Grand Ave. in So. Pasadena near the corner of Senor Fish (618 Mission Street, 91030) at 5am. We'll meet at that corner of Grand and Mission. From here we will run to the start line. Below are the directions IN CASE anyone gets seperated but shouldn't happen since Choy is leading the group and I'll be sweeping. Total mileage is approx 9 miles! Please bring money for lunch and a train ticket (back to South Pas train station a block away from where we park http://www.yelp.com/biz/mission-gold-line-station-south-pasadena)! Note it will be dark when we start off so bring a flashlight or headlamp if possible. Also Coach Choy will have room in his bag to hold personal items like keys or t shirts.
