Registration is now open for the second annual Texas Sienna 10, slated for April 29, 2017, in Sienna Plantation.
Part of the Texas 10 Series, the race features a 10-mile, five-mile, five-kilometer and kids’ one-mile race. Participants accrue points toward cash prizes in the Armadillo Cup, which awards top point earners in an array of male and female age categories. Those interested can register online at www.texas10series.com. Early bird costs are $45 for the 10-mile race, $35 for the five-mile event, $25 for the five-kilometer race and $15 for the kids’ one-mile run. Registration fees increase as race day approaches.
“The Armadillo Cup is designed to award a large number of racers,” said William Fowlkes, race director. “Age group categories are in five-year increments, and participants score points throughout the year by racing in our different events. The series caters to racing clubs, as well, which can earn points toward the 10 Gallon Club Cup.”
The Texas Sienna 10 is a 15-point race.
Last year, about 800 racers — including 85 children — participated in the inaugural Texas Sienna 10. Fowlkes said he expects the number of racers in 2017 to approach 1,100.
“We have received a tremendous amount of positive feedback from the runners about the first Sienna 10 and the venue,” Fowlkes said. “We also typically see an uptick in the number of racers after the first year as more people hear about the race.”
A draw for participants are the race after-party and the Crazy Cash Giveaway, during which 10 random racers in the 10-mile race will win $100, five participants in the five-mile race will win $50 and one child from the kids’ one-mile event will win $100.
