SNAKES HAVE INVADED
THE RAFFA RUN!!
The Raffa staff was out on the the 5K trail through the woods yesterday finishing up a few last minute things in preparation for tomorrow’s event. The trail is very muddy and there is a lot of standing water. It was in one of those areas that we happened upon a cottonmouth snake! It was VERY aggressive and by the grace of God, our staff was not injured.
Because of this event, our Board of Directors and Staff have made the decision to CLOSE the 5K through the woods. There will be NO MUD RUN.
THE RAFFA RUN IS STILL ON!
We were blessed by Boles ISD and Boles Home to be able to use their campuses this year to offer a 5K and 1K on the streets of their campuses. They are paved and dry. While this option won’t be as fun as running through the woods, we feel it is the only safe option for our participants.
Please let your friends and family that were planning to come to the Run know of this change. We will still have on-site registration at 8:30am and the race will begin at 9.
We appreciate your accommodating us in this change and hope you understand our reasoning behind the last minute change. We hope to see you tomorrow at the Raffa Run!
