Share Article

Share the ROAD’s first annual 5k was pronounced a success after community support was shown.

The race was very successful due to the help of Street Toyota and awareness was raised due to the promotion of Share the ROAD.

Street Toyota sponsored Share the ROAD’s first annual 5k run on September 17, 2011. The event gave way for approximately 125 runners to participate- doubling their expectations. The participants ranged from ages 7 to 70 years old.

The event was hosted around the Oliver Eakle neighborhood, where brick roads are located and many historical homes surround the area. Amarillo College also lent their campus for the environment of the run and a one-mile walk was hosted at Memorial Park.

Street Toyota placed multiple Toyota Scions around the area, one including the 2012 TC release series 7.0. Also, the Lone Star Runners Club brought their employees to help with timing and other race logistics to insure a professionally organized run.

Samantha Collum Street Toyota Interactive Marketing Manager and Share the ROAD Marketing Director, was elated to see such a good turn out.
    “I love that my two passions came together for a great cause. The race was very successful due to the help of Street Toyota and awareness was raised due to the promotion of Share the ROAD,” said Collum.

Plans are already being made for the next annual Share the ROAD 5k in 2012.
