At the initial planning meeting for next year’s (2011) run, Saturday, October 15th 7:30 AM was set as the date and time of the run.  The venue will again be the Navarre Beach Pier.

The structure for the Race Planning Team was discussed and we now have a slate of coordination positions to be filled along with selection of the Overall Race Director.    We need a fee good volunteers to keep our event progressing and have it be all it can be.   If you have a desire for a better Navarre and a willingness to organize in the following areas, please email us at navbms@navarrebeachmarinesanctuary.com or call 850-677-1875.  No run experience is necessary – we’ve done this a couple of times now and have  a wealth of know how, templates, etc in most of these areas.  Here are the leadership needs:

Overall Race Director – Do you like being in charge,  following up on things, making sure everyone is staying on track, and ensuring things run smoothly?   This is the job for you.

Sponsorship Coordinator – Help us get out ahead of the curve by contacting and securing existing and new sponsors early in the year.

Registrations Coordinator – Set up our online registrations and manage the in person registrations, including tracking participant information, planning & coordinating package pickup, and race day registration.

Public Safety and Course Coordinator – Planing and  race day coordination  with  sheriff’s department, CERT, Fire and Rescue personnel and race day course setup.

Advertising & T-Shirts Coordinator – Are you a gad about town or a creative soul.  Keep our event in the public domain and put your creativity to work on next year’s race shirt.

Venue & Awards Coordinator – This one is for party planners.  Coordinate with the venue, secure the awards, and make sure the after party and awards ceremony go off as planned.

Results Coordinator – Arrange for race timing and work with the vendor to ensure timely and accurate results.

Thanks to the participants, volunteers and sponsors, the 2nd Annual Run For the Reef 5k and Kid’s 1 Mile Fun Run was another huge success.  The venue for this year’s event was the Navarre Beach Fishing Pier.  Runners again were treated to entertainment, food, beer and soft drinks with free after race massages and lots of great door prizes.   You can check out the results at the event timing website – (http://www.eventtiming.com).

The post race party and awards ceremony  was emcee’d by Tom and Jan Dearien of Islandtime Entertainment with special celebrity guest Aimee Shaffer of 102.1 FM and Mr. Navarre – Andy Epstein.  The Navarre Pier proved a perfect setting with everyone enjoying the great fall weather and breathtaking Gulf Front views from the deck.

This year’s event saw us almost double our sponsorships and participation was again close to 300 people.

Thanks to everyone that came out to help Make Navarre Snorkelicious!!
