High Point Area Fitness Leaders Launch Southern Triad Race Series
High Point/Thomasville, N.C.- In a unified effort to promote physical fitness and wellness in the High Point/Thomasville/Archdale-Trinity community, four local races have joined forces to launch the Southern Triad Race Series.
Led by the High Point Thomasville HiToms, Grubb Family YMCA, High Point University Panther Club, and the Trinity Run 5/Feed 5 5K, the Southern Triad Race series debuts this spring as a unified racing calendar to inspire year-long fitness and shared community experiences. Targeting competitive and recreational runners, walkers and Triad-area youth, the Southern Triad Race Series is a concerted effort by our community’s fitness leaders to energize our area’s exercise culture.
“The HPT HiToms growth has been directly tied to our commitment to improving the community’s recreational and competitive opportunities,” HiToms President Greg Suire said. “Through this quest, our partnerships with the Archdale YMCA, HPU Panther Club and the Run 5/Feed 5 have blossomed enough to create a unified series of exercise opportunities. All four of our charter organizations understand that we must take a leadership role in developing area fitness programs that inspire, motivate and unify.”
Providing participants with the opportunity to accumulate points for participation and age group top level finishes, the Southern Triad Race Series will be administered by On the Mark Sports and supported in part by Omega Sports. Launching April 29th with the highly successful Run 5/Feed 5 in Trinity, the southern Triad Race Series will feature one spring event and three fall races.
“We are excited to be a part of the team that brings this unified effort to our area,” said Paxton Tallent, Grubb Family YMCA Executive. “The Y is about serving the community and making it a better place and this race series allows us to do that. It also aligns perfectly with our focus areas of youth development, healthy living, and social responsibility. The great thing about each of these events is that anyone can participate, from the young to the old and the casual walker to the competitive runner.”
Registration for the series’ first race, the Run 5/Feed 5, is available on-line at www.run5feed5.com and the remaining three 5K’s registration can be accessed via www.southerntriadraceseries.com April 1st.
