Thank you Lanier Running Club members, for your very generous donations to our adopted family at Christmas. Sorry that this notice is so late but would like to share some of the highlights of where the donations went,

With over $600.00 in cash and gift cards, plus gifts, we were able to provide each of the 4 kids with almost everything on their lists; spending approximately $100.00 each. We got the 3 year old boy a bike, toys and a couple outfits. each of the 3 girls received an outfit and highlights from their lists. The parents had gift cards for either groceries or more gifts plus money that could be used for car repairs. The church was made aware that they requested car repairs and there is someone at the church that owns a shop that could help.

Attached is a picture of all the wrapped gifts. I hope this family had a wonderful Christmas thanks to our little running club.

Again, thank you for your donations and your participation in blessing others. I hope you all had a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year,

The Dixie200 Relay is a unique, overnight relay adventure in which you and 11 friends run 200 scenic miles from Atlanta to Birmingham. The Dixie200 Relay begins just outside of Atlanta and runs on theSilver Comet and Chief Ladiga trails. This scenic course will take you through fields, forests, and rolling hills as you finish outside of Birmingham at Oak Mountain State Park.

The Dixie200 Relay will be held March 22-23, 2013. Beginning near Atlanta, the first flight of teams will start the 200 mile relay around 6:00 am on Friday morning March 22. Over the next several hours, additional sets of teams will depart on their overnight journey. Teams will begin arriving at Oak Mountain State Park around noon on Saturday to conclude their Dixie200 Relay experience.

Teams for the Dixie200 Relay are generally made up of 4 to 12 people who split 36 legs. For instance, each person of a 12 person relay team will run three legs over distances varying from 3 – 10 miles. Each team will provide support vans to drop off and pick up runners at designated exchange zones along the 200 mile route.
