2016 Recap: Start of Something Big

While last night’s IOA Corporate 5k seemed like a big-time race in downtown, it didn’t start out that way. In 1995, there were about 2000 runners and walkers which was considered a big local race at the time. It’s great that so many companies have continued to participate since that first year.  IOA is one company that comes to mind.  

Fast forward to the 22nd IOA Corporate 5k, a picture-perfect night at Lake Eola where 700 companies gathered in the heart of the city celebrating running, walking, camaraderie at work and community caring.  It’s thrilling to see the corporate community respond by in contributing 24,000+ meals to Second Harvest Food Bank and the Christian Service Center. Read More >>

After months of permitting, planning and procuring for the 21st IOA Corporate 5k what were the chances that unseasonably bad weather might rain on our "parade?"  Unfortunately about 70%!  Up to the minute, meteorologists and local radar were showing a high probability of thunderstorms in and around downtown Orlando at race time.

During April, Track Shack customers and IOA Corporate 5k participants were invited to "Donate & Get Fit" for a chance to win an iPad, courtesy of New Balance the official apparel and shoe sponsor of the Corporate 5k. Customers donated their old running shoes and got specially fit for new running shoes.

The iPad winner was David Montanez, Environmental Graphic Manufacturer (Sign Maker) at Florida Hospital.
"I'm a long time runner and I run to keep my cholesterol and health in good shape. I've been shopping at Track Shack so long I remember when it was down the street where the Black Sheep knitting store is now," says Montanez. "I will be deployed to Afghanistan in June with the Naval Reserve Seabee unit for 10 months. The iPad will be a wonderful new tool to take with me during my deployment to stay in touch with my wife, family and friends."
