Runners:  Can you Beat Beethoven?


At 8:00 a.m. on Saturday, Sept. 7 in Quincy, IL, Beethoven’s 5th Symphony will begin. Can you complete the 5K before the Symphony is finished???

That’s 28 minutes and 39 seconds!


Runners will be professionally chip-timed, with Medals for Men’s & Women’s 1st 2nd and 3rd Place, plus all runners who Beat Beethoven’s time will receive a medal!


Walkers, come enjoy the beautiful fall morning and walk for a wonderful cause:  Helping to bring Music to the Lives of our Children.   Join a team if you like:  Join my team in honor of the Quincy Area Youth Orchestra and Chorus.  Join the Symphony Chorus’s team honoring Phyllis Robertson’s 30th Anniversary with the chorus.  Or make a team of your own and encourage as many of your friends to participate as possible.  How about a Disney team with everyone dressed as Disney Characters as the QSO prepares for Disney in Concert on Sept 29th!

Registration is $30 – You’ll receive a free concert ticket good for any Quincy Symphony Orchestra or Chorus concert next season – an $18 value.  This could be your “ticket to Disney.”  If you register by this Saturday, you’ll also receive a free t-shirt – an $8 value – so your true cost for this race will be $4!

Proceeds go to such an important mission – keep music in the lives of our kids!

C’mon – Register!  Join me!  What are you waiting for?
