DCTR 2019: We Outran Cancer + We Rocked It!

WOW is all that we can say! You OUTRAN CANCER and YOU ROCK. Thank you to everyone that joined us last Saturday for the 8th Annual Darby Creek Trail Run. The energy around the start/finish line was fantastic, the speakers were amazing, the post-race party was bumping and the weather was gorgeous.

We were excited to welcome a record-breaking 364 runners this year! With the funds raised we will continue spreading cancer prevention awareness, reinforcing education and inspiring preventative action through events.

Congratulations to our 5k winners – Ansel Nalin & Katie Lindamood – and our 10k winners – Brandon Zall & Kat Briggs! Way to get after it! For the rest of this year’s race results, check out the Race Penguin Page here: 2019 DCTR Race Results!

Also, check out some of the awesome race day photos captured by Oh Deer Photography, LLC on FLIP’s Facebook page: 2019 DCTR Race Photos. Be sure to check these out, tag yourself, like it, share it, love it! More to come from our other awesome photographer, too!
A special thanks to our title sponsor, Shout It Out Design + our Post-Race Party Sponsor, Navigator Management Partners. Thanks to House of Aum for leading us in pre-race stretching + yoga and for Dr. Alexandria Diaz for your prevention tips! An additional thank you to our 2019 INSPIRE and TRAIL Sponsors: The James Cancer Hospital, Watershed Distillery and Versa, and many many others for their generous in-kind donations! A special thanks to Fleet Feet Columbus for your generous award donations!

A HUGE thanks to Matt Barnes + NBC4 for joining us this year as our race emcee. Your energy was contagious! Thanks to Metro Cuisine for hooking us up with the post-race food and refueling us with deliciousness.

How about those AWESOME race shirts this year? We are so thankful for Shake Out Apparel’s support and creation of an impactful and powerful race shirt! Speaking of which, we still have a few participant tees available for $15. If you’d like to snag one, please contact quinn@flipcancernow.org to coordinate a time to pick one up from our office location in the Brewery District. Payment can be made via FLIP’s PayPal.

We also want to give a shoutout to our board members who took on large roles this year planning the race.  They did an above-and-beyond job securing tons of awesome prizes, creating excitement at the FLIP stations and making sure there was plenty of volunteer support! If you were inspired by FLIP’s mission and are interested in joining our team as a board member or volunteer, please reach out to us at meg@flipcancernow.org.

We hope to see everyone again next year, and encourage you to bring a friend or two to share FLIP’s mission.
