Subway Spokesperson Jared Fogle Scheduled to Appear at Event
Registration is well under way for the SUBWAY® Dragons 5K, with over 1,500 people already signed up to join SUBWAY® spokesperson Jared Fogle for the race on Saturday, July 19 at 9am. In 2013, the SUBWAY® Dragons 5K became one of the largest races in the Miami Valley and with current registration numbers and new activities slotted for the post-race party, it is well on its way to being bigger and better for 2014.
“The Subway Dayton Dragons 5k race is a great way to bring the family together for exercise and fun. Starting and ending at Fifth Third Field makes this annual event a special day and one I especially look forward to. Hope to see everyone there again on July 19!” says Jared Fogle on the impact of the event.
All participants in the run receive an official dri-fit shirt, stadium seat tickets to a Dragons game and three vouchers good for one (1) 6″ FRESH FIT® sub, one (1) breakfast sub from SUBWAY® and one sub of the participant’s choosing.
An awards ceremony will take place after the race. The top three male and female finishers will receive a specially-engraved baseball bat. A new twist this year is prizes for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place group finishers! Participants could sign up as a group and have the chance to win great group awards including a Subway catering!
The registration fee is $30 for adults. Kids age 17 and under can register for just $15. Fans should sign up today to reserve their spot at daytondragons.com/subwaydragon5k (follow the link on the front page) or stopping by the Dragons Box Office.
The run will begin at 9:00 a.m. on July 19 at Fifth Third Field. Participants may choose to run or walk the course. Baby strollers are also permitted. The course will move through downtown Dayton and end back at the ballpark for a post-race party. SUBWAY® subs will be available for participants and their supporters.
The post-race fun features a “meet and greet” with Jared Fogle, face painting, carnival and inflatable games, FREE Subway sandwich and cookie samples and more fun for the whole family.
