Honorary race co-chairs, Emily Jed of Vending Times and Emily Refermat of Automatic Merchandiser and, will kick off the race at the start line.

“The WIN group has done a wonderful job organizing this event and we’re excited to announce that more than 70 attendees have registered so far,” said Pam Gilbert, NAMA Director of Association Services and staff liaison for WIN. “The title of the race says it all – it’s a fun run, and will be a fun way to start your day and network with colleagues.  We welcome runners and walkers of all levels to participate – this race is a ‘don’t-miss’ at CTW.”

If CTW attendees have not yet registered for the Fun Run on the CTW website, they may contact Gilbert directly at [email protected] to register.
