On October 19, University Healthcare and The Wellness Center at Berkeley Medical Center will sponsor the 34th annual Apple Trample 5k, an official event of the Mountain State Apple Harvest Festival.
 
The Apple Trample is a great event for first-time walkers and competitive runners who want to set a new personal record.  This year's even features two start times, one for runners and one for walkers. Walkers will start at 10:30am, runners at 11:30am. 
 
The race start will be at the McCormack Center on the campus of Berkeley Medical Center.  It is a USATF certified course that follows a gently rolling terrain and finishes on the track at Cobourn Field with spectators in the stands. 
 
A new addition to this year's Apple Trample is a personalized, official finisher's Emergency Contact Apple Trample ID Tag.  Register on the web site before October 12 in order to qualify for the ID tag.  Participants will be presented their own official emergency contact ID tag upon crossing the finish line.
 
Registration information for the Apple Trample 5k including the ID tag may be found on line at www.appletrample.com.  Early registration for the Apple Trample is $20 with a t-shirt and $17 without a t-shirt.  Registration after October 12 is $25.  
 
In addition to the ID tag, other special features for this year's Apple Trample include an official finisher's red carpet photo, t-shirt, race bag, bag check-in service, shuttle service and complimentary race photos on the Apple Trample web site.
 
Proceeds from this year's Apple Trample will benefit the Mountain State Apple Harvest Festival, and University Healthcare's Cancer & Infusion Center and Women's Imaging Center, both departments of Berkeley Medical Center.  For more information, visit www.appletrample.com.
