5km Run          

32nd Annual AVS Run
. . . the Oldest Professional Society Run in the World!

When: Wednesday, October 31, 2012
Venue: AVS 59th International Symposium
Distance: 5 x 1012 nm (5Km for non-nanos)
Time and Place: 6:15 a.m. - Along the Bayshore Sidewalk, Tampa
Fee: $30.00


Our 32nd Annual AVS Run, the oldest professional society Run on our planet, will be held with our AVS 59th International Symposium & Exhibition in Tampa, Florida. This year's race will take place along the Bayshore Sidewalk, the longest continuous sidewalk in the world! The start and finish is within walking distance of the Tampa Convention Center. With your entry fee you will receive a run t-shirt, race number, and awards. Also, this year’s race will be chip-timed! The run records are still held by Mike Martini (who ran this event in an astounding 14:46!) and by Heidi Denton (18:17).

The race will be held on Wednesday morning at a time that will allow runners to make the first sessions. The awards ceremony will be held Wednesday noon – at the Run-registration area. The CORPORATE RACE and the DIVISIONS AND GROUPS RACE will be highlights again this year. Each team representing a corporate entity (university, unemployed, research organization, manufacturer, etc.) or Division/Group must have 3 team members to qualify. Times are handicapped by age and sex. In the interest of enhancing the already billowing AVS membership, non-AVS members will be time penalized.

The CORPORATE CUP is still held by the fast, but now-ageing BATTELLE PNL team - which expects to be challenged more than ever this year. The DIVISIONS/GROUPS CUP in Nashville was captured by the VTD (I think)! Contact the Race Director with questions or suggestions (bridget_rogers@avs.org). See you in Tampa!
