Colorado Springs, CO, January 07, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- Bigwig Races, a Colorado Springs based producer of top-notch 5K and 10K races, announced today that it has named Smash Events as the official Event Coordinator and exclusive Event Planning sponsor for its Hams and Hamstrings 5K race to be held in Colorado Springs on Easter Sunday, April 8, 2012.
“Smash Events will help us make sure our inaugural Easter run is an outstanding event as well as an awesome run,” said Curtis Claar, co-founder and Sponsor Relations Manager for Bigwig Races. “We wanted to get a professional event manager in place so we could focus on the sponsors and runners. And the fun of the day’s event.”
Although most of the events planned by Smash Events are weddings, Smash Events also has an impressive portfolio of planning other events. “Just like a wedding requires thorough planning and attention to detail, so too does a successful 5K. Our job is to see that each detail of the race is tended to so that the runners can focus on doing their very best, meeting their personal fitness goals, and being a part of a quality sporting event,” said Ashlee Springer, founder of Smash Events.
The Hams and Hamstrings 5K race is being billed as “Colorado’s Easter Day 5K,” and is one of only a very few races across the country planned for Easter Sunday. The race is open to serious runners, walkers, teens, and families alike. Prizes will be offered for first, second and third place finishes. Additionally, the race will be sanctioned by USA Track & Field and will be chip-timed. Registration for the race is available at hamsandhamstrings.com.
“In Colorado Springs, we love Jesus and we love running. This race is a perfect fit for our community and a great way to come together and celebrate these two attributes of our city,” Springer added.
