2016 RACE FOR SEMINARIANS
There are a number of options to race (and raise money for) seminarians this year.
Due to the unexpected early
closing of registration for the Marine Corps 10K this year, our field of
runners is greatly reduced.
If you already have a spot in the Marine Corps Marathon or 10K, you are welcome to join the Race for Seminarians Team here. Marathon runners have a fundraising goal of $350; 10K runners of $175.
If you do not have a space...Fear not! There are more opportunities for
you to Race for Seminarians, offering your training and raising money for
vocations in our diocese through your participation in another race (see
Not a runner? Please support those who are! Donations are tax-deductible, and can be made by credit
card, cash or check. Our runners and
seminarians also appreciate your prayers.
all you walkers and runners out there,
we’ve compiled the below list of races, thinking they are better known (and
known to be fun), but you are welcome to choose any race. Then gather your
sponsors and get training! Just as in the Marine Corps 10K, we ask runners to
pledge to raise $175 for this cause, and support you with ideas and materials
to make this happen.
Veterans Day 10K, Saturday
November 12, Washington DC
Marine Corps Turkey Trot, Saturday November 19, Quantico
Jingle All the Way
Holiday 5K & 15K, Sunday December 4, Washington DC
St. Pat’s 5K & 10K (and double), Sunday March 5, 2017, Washington, DC (registration is not yet
also has a number of races coming up.)
If you would like to participate
in one of these races (or another), make sure to register first with that race to
secure your spot, then contact our office to register you as part of
the Race for Seminarians team. We will also send you materials to support your
fundraising and training, and put you in touch with others who are
running. You can also network with other
runners on the Race for Seminarians Facebook page.
HOW WILL YOUR DONATIONS HELP?
Fundraising directly affects the work of the Office of Vocations in the Diocese of Arlington. Funds will assist those discerning a vocation to priesthood and those who are in seminary formation. The Diocese provides each seminarian with an education, housing and food, yet other unexpected expenses occur. Your donations will help supplement discernment programs as well as pay for seminarian expenses not normally covered by the Diocese.
