Batesville K12 benefits students

Downtown will be teeming with athletes in a few weeks. The first Batesville K12, a 12K race organized by the Batesville Community Education Foundation, is Saturday, Oct. 12, at 9 a.m.

Since 7.5 miles is a long run, a 12K relay will be offered at the same time. Four team members each will complete a 3K loop that starts and ends at Batesville Shopping Village near the George-Main streets intersection.

BCEF administrator Kelly Poltrack believes the event will appeal to athletes of varying abilities. “We have the 12K for serious runners like those training for a half marathon. The relay portion is only a little less than two miles, so it is a good distance for even a beginning runner. Additionally, if you don’t like to run, you can walk the race.”

The entry fee is $25 before Oct. 5 and $30 after. Relay team rates are $40 and $45, respectively.

The race is being chip-timed by local experts Stuart Road Racing and the individual 12K runners will go off in front of the relays. The last leg of the relay will finish with the 12K, but the transition area will not be part of the full 12K route.

A freewill donation, carb-loading pasta dinner takes place the night before, Friday, Oct. 11, from 5-7 p.m. at the Batesville Intermediate School cafeteria. She suggests, “Go to the homecoming parade, then let BIS principal Dr. Schoettmer cook for you before heading over to the football game! You do not have to be running in the race to go to the pasta dinner. We will have pasta, salad, garlic bread and cookies. It is a great opportunity to register early and carb-load.” Dinner RSVPs are appreciated: 812-216-8137.

Dr. Jim Roberts, Batesville Community School Corp. superintendent, says, “The purpose of the Batesville K12 race is twofold: We wish to raise funds in order to continue to support academics, athletics and the arts for Batesville students; and we wish to have a community-minded event that brings people to downtown Batesville. The existence of the farmers’ market and presence of other vendors should make the downtown square feel like a festival atmosphere that will be fun for all ages.”
