About the Race:
The Run for Jim Memorial Fund was established in memory of Jimmy Bashaw who died at the age of 45 from brain cancer. Jimmy was a teacher and longtime girls’ basketball coach at Bellows Free Academy of St. Albans. Jimmy’s family and friends wish to remember him by continuing his kind and charitable ways by helping others in their time of need. The proceeds of this event are used to aid residents of Franklin and Grand Isle counties with expenses related to catastrophic illnesses. These awards are distributed through the Jim Bashaw Memorial Fund at the Northwestern Medical Center.
Win an apple pie!!! The 5K race is run on a paved loop in picturesque St. Albans. The first mile is fast with a gentle downhill. The second mile features a gradual uphill and the course finishes flat and fast. Apple pies for top finishers and age group winners are always a crowd favorite! Walkers start at the same time and follow the same route. The Walk is not timed. Pizzas gift cards are raffled for the walkers.
You can make this a family affair! The kids races are at 8:30 and held on the track at the Collins Perley Complex. All finishers get a t-shirt and glow in the dark medal. There is also face painting and cookies!!!
