Aug. 6, 2012 - PRLog -- Foot Solutions of Estero announces it will be hosting the 1st Annual “Footloose & Fancy Free 5K” Run/Walk at Koreshan State Park, to be held on Saturday, November 10th.  Registration will be at 7:30am, and the run begins at 8am.  Registration forms and sponsorship information is available online at http://www.stores.footsolutions.com/estero ,or may be picked up at Foot Solutions Estero.  Foot Solutions will also be providing free running analyses and digital foot scans at their Estero location, for all participants in the months leading up to the race.

The Foot Solutions Estero “Footloose & Fancy Free 5K” Run/Walk will feature a unique course that winds through the beautiful trails and historic sites of Koreshan State Park.  Runners will enjoy varied terrains and beautiful scenery as they travel along paths that were once the foot trails of the Koreshan colony during the late 1800’s.  

“We are very excited about this event, and are looking forward to a great turnout for our first year!” said Chris Cole, Owner, Foot Solutions Estero.  “We’ve participated as a sponsor for many other runs in the community, and many of our customers are avid runners, so we just thought it made sense that we should host a running event of our own.  Koreshan State Park is a beautiful place to run, and has been the destination for several very successful 5K’s in years past.  The park owners are very excited about this event as well, and are looking forward to inviting those runners back, as well as many new participants for this 5K.”

The run will also be held in conjunction with a shoe drive to benefit the non-profit organizations, “Soles4Souls” and “Shoes for the Cure”.  Participants are asked to bring a pair of used shoes with them on the day of the event to be donated to Soles4Souls, as well as other local charities.  All shoes will either be redistributed to those in need of footwear, or will be recycled for materials.

Cole added, “We encourage all runners and walkers to come out for this event to have fun, while also supporting a great cause!”

An award ceremony will be held immediately following the run, in which prizes will be awarded to winners for males and females in each age category.  The timing and course tracking will be provided by 3D Racing.

Sponsorship opportunities are currently available for this event.  Registration forms are available online and at Foot Solutions of Estero.  To download registration forms or sponsorship information, visit http://www.stores.footsolutions.com/estero and go to the “Events” page.  Online registration is also available on Active.com
