Not sure if the organizers will read this, but here's some constructive criticism if they are: $100 is a lot for a 5k. It's absolutely a good cause but you'd have a much better response if the commitment was lower. For example, Cheshire House has their 5k on 9/16 and you can still register for only $25. Also, drop the cape idea and come up with a cool t-shirt instead. For ideas on the cycling portion check out St. Barnabas Burn Ctr for ideas. They have it down pat. I wish you luck but I also think you need a different strategy.
