Online registration for 2014 Bellin Run opens

December 20, 2013

Run/walk event offers option to gift registration this holiday season

Here’s a health and fitness gift idea for shoppers still in search of a unique, stand-out holiday present – paying the entry fee for family or friends for the 2014 Bellin Run 10K.

Online signup for the 38th annual run/walk event officially opens Friday. Returning this year is the ability to buy registrations for family, friends, co-workers and others.

“A paid registration to the 2014 Bellin Run is a unique gift especially for those already planning to take better control of their health and fitness in the coming year,” said executive race director Randy Van Straten. “Registering a family member or a friend is a great way of helping them put some action behind their health and fitness aspirations.

“We’re excited to be able to continue to offer this healthy and unique gift idea in time for Christmas and New Year’s,” Van Straten said.

Bellin Run organizers also have released the logo for the 2014 event.

“The annual Bellin Run logo has become a tradition in itself,” Van Straten said. “Registrants tell us they look forward to seeing each year’s design. It’s not uncommon to see people around town sporting a Bellin Run T-shirt from past events. It’s a very visible sign of the wearer’s accomplishment and commitment to fitness and wellness.”

The Bellin Run will take place at 8 a.m., Saturday, June 14. The 6.2-mile run/walk through Green Bay and Allouez traditionally occurs on the second Saturday of June.

Online registration for the 2014 event is $20 through Thursday, May 1. All registrants receive an official 2014-style Bellin Run T-shirt.

Registration is easy. Visit the Bellin Run website at http://www.bellinrun.com to sign up and click on the tab labeled “Register Online.” Click the “Buy Registration as a Gift” tab and follow the instructions to purchase a registration for family or friends.

“It’s a great holiday gift and helps encourage Bellin Run participation by loved ones,” said Linda Maxwell, assistant race director for the Bellin Run. “It’s also a great way keep health and fitness top of mind as we start making our annual New Year’s resolutions to get fit, reduce weight and make healthier lifestyle choices.”

The 2013 Bellin Run recorded 20,000 registrants.

  • I really like the new logo,  but I’m hoping one of these years you have a different colored t-shirt besides white. I would love to see a Heather gray or navy or something different. I realize white is easy, but it’s so overused and doesn’t age well. It’s not like many people need a white shirt to run in because most people don’t wear the Bellin shirt for the run anyway. Please consider gray or something different.  Thanks.
