Spring is probably my favorite time of year. Birds are chirping. We are out of our winter doldrums. Thomasville homes are practically spilling over with beautiful flowers, including roses. This weekend, we celebrate our city's nickname ("Rose City") with the 2016 Thomasville Rose City 5K Walk.

2016 Thomasville Rose City 5K Walk
The 2016 Thomasville Rose City 5K Walk is one of the very first events that acts as a precursor to the annual Rose Show and Festival in our lovely Thomasville community. Anyone aged 13 or older is more than welcome to participate. The 3.1 mile walk (5000 meters) will begin promptly at 8:30am. Every person who crosses the finish line will receive a special medal in honor of their participation. However, trophies will be awarded to top three male and female walkers overall, the fastest three Thomas County men and women and the oldest man and woman who participate. Get your co-workers together to form a team. The businesses that have the highest percentage of workers who participate in five separate categories will each receive their own special trophy. What a conversation piece for your company to own, right?
There is no race day registration allowed for the 2016 Thomasville Rose City 5K Walk. You can download a Rose City 5K Walk registration form here. Fill it out and send it along with your registration fee to Rose City Run, PO Box 1037, Thomasville, GA 31799. You can also register online via the event's Active.com site. You will need to create an Active.com account (if you don't already have one) before you can continue on to the form.
