On Saturday, June 22nd the HiToms will host the 2nd Annual Home Run 5K & Bike Race. In addition to the running portion of the race, this year's event will incorporate a new component - cycling routes of 30, 45 and 55 miles. The biking loops will take riders through surrounding areas of Thomasville and High Point, and will provide an arduous test for both avid and novice cyclists alike. Detailed routes for the designated distances will be posted in the near future.
The Friday night home game (June 21 vs Martinsville) will serve as a "Pre-Race Party" night and provides the opportunity for sponsors and participants to receive their due recognition on Finch Field. All participants receive a free ticket to this game as part of their race package.
The HiToms are would like to thank Novant Health for serving as this year's presenting sponsor and openly welcome the support of any other local businesses. Proceeds from the race will go to support HiToms youth baseball, while several health initiatives and lifestyle awareness campaigns will also be directly integrated into the event. Additional details, including local community involvement, will be posted shortly. Registration for the race begins on February 15th.
