Official Announcement!! Mayorz Marathon!


Our first ever Mayorz Marathon will be held April 16, 2015

We will need a few assistants who are good at photo-shopping to help out.  We need folks who are willing to host the start, finish, and various mile markers along the way.  We already have hosts for "pit stops".  We have Frankie & Ernie manning one of the pit stops and Madi hosting a water stop.

*****

Here's how it will work.  Just like a real marathon you must register (send in your photos) while you are still in training.  The dead lion for photos is March 15th.

Everyone will start at the starting line blog.  At the end of that post will be a link to take you to the next mile, and so on until we all get to the finish line.

All registrations (photos) will be sent in to the Mayorz (except for the ones F&E will use cuz they will be peeing photos).  PLEASE send in your best quality photos showing your pet's full body in a standing pawsition (see photography tips from Fi & Abby HERE).  The photo-shoppers will cut the dog/cat images out of the photo so they can be used at the various mile markers as the race moves along our 26.2 mile course.  Each host blog will have creative license to tell the story of what is happening at their particular mile marker.  This means the story can have some wild twists and turns!  So pawticipants will need to read all the posts to get the full story on their race!

This is going to be fun, fun, fun!  BUTT MAKE SURE YOU READ THE RULES!


  1. 1.  If you want to be In the RACE send a Picture with the Name of the Racer to the email below.
  2. If you are in the RACE and want to stop at the POTTY Station... Send a SEPARATE Picture DIRECTLY to Frankie (see link below).
  3. The only thing that is REQUIRED is the RACE.... Potty stops are for fun, water stop will be included. 
  4. You must be an official racer to pawticipate in any other activities.  No Bandits allowed!
  5. OBSERVE ALL DEADLINES!!

Send your race photos to:  cecampbell [AT] msn [DOT] com
Check in with Frankie & Ernie for their rules/requirements! 
Check with Madi for her requirements!


LEGAL NOTICE:  Blogville Pawlice will be on the official race course and promptly remove and arrest any "bandits" (illegal runners who did not legally register)!!  In order to be legally registered for this race (meaning we received your photo) your name must appear on the list (shown under tab on blog).

Hi Doodle Mayors! You were TOTALLY right, this is right up my street! I am so very excited for this, because as you know i just love to run! I would love to join in the marathon but would also be able to host a "pit stop" too, I would do the pee-pee pit stop, no time taken off for a quick bush potty stop just an issue of the Yellow Card for a time out! LOL!
This all sounds like so much fun, as you can see I have already started some crazy training routines! Love and licks from your furiend Frank xxxxx

What a great thing - organisation looks good and it promotes physical activities which are impawtent for Wellness!!! Clearly I shall not be able to pawticipate, having only two legs (and if planning this side goes ahead I shall be travelling at that time), so spectatorship will be all I could manage for this particular event. HOWEVER, during the times of training is when many find out that they are not quite as fit as they thought or need to make alterations to diet and for that EFURbuddy is welcome to call on the OoWaC for help and guidance... Hugs and wags, YAM-aunty xxx
