Join Me for the Are You Faster than a Boy Scout Run

by Lisa Bray

Join Me for the Are You Faster than a Boy Scout Run

As an Arizona native and Goodyear resident, I’ve been proudly serving the West Valley real estate market since 2003. In addition to working as full-time agent helping clients achieve their real estate goals throughout the Valley, I love participating in local community events. Especially the charity 5Ks! Back in December I had the pleasure of running in the Run Run Rudolph Quarter Marathon Run at Rio Vista Park in Peoria. This month, I invite you to join me for the upcoming community walk/run event, Are you Faster than a Boy Scout on Saturday, March 17th.

This is a fun, family-friendly event that you will want to return to year after year. The race is a flat and fast, chip timed event and is staffed by the Boy Scouts with support from adult volunteers. Best of all 100 percent of the proceeds for this race go to fund Scouting activities including, summer camps and high adventure camps for the active Scouts in the local Troop. Troop 99, based in Litchfield Park, was chartered by the Goodyear Aircraft Corp. in 1943 and has been developing young boys into leaders in the community ever since.

The run will take place at 7:00 am at the City of Litchfield Park located at 100 S. Old Litchfield Rd., Litchfield. There will be a 5k and 10k course available to either walk or run and participants will receive a race shirt, Boy Scout themed finisher medal, and assorted discounts. The top three male and female finishers in each age group will receive awards and there will be a special division for Scouts. If you’d like more information about the first annual Are You Faster than a Boy Scout Run or if you’d like to join me, you can register by clicking here.

For more fun things to do in the West Valley or if you’re ready to buy or sell a home in the communities of Goodyear, Litchfield Park and Avondale, please contact me today!
