1st Place Sports Running | JB 7K


Saturday, December 1, 2012

  • Time: 9:30 AM
  • Location: Little Talbot Island State Park

Proceeds from the race will benefit the Jared Bynum Scholarship Fund at Julia Landon Middle School. The scholarship fund was established after Jared's death to assist a deserving Landon student from an underprivileged background with college tuition expenses.

About Jared

Jared Bynum, a committed runner, triathlete and one of the founders of the PRS Running Club, suddenly and tragically lost his life on Sunday, October 7, 2012 when he was struck from behind by an SUV at the halfway point of his last 100 mile training ride before the Florida Ironman.

In 2010, Jared and his wife, Kelli, in collaboration with their church, Southside Baptist, started mentoring at-risk students at Julia Landon Middle School. After his fatal accident last month, Landon Middle School created a scholarship fund in Jared's honor. Funds for this scholarship will help pay college tuition costs for a deserving Landon student from an underprivileged background.

In memory of our friend, the PRS Running Club with the contributions of our race sponsors will host the first annual JB 7K at Little Talbot Island State Park to honor Jared and raise money for the Jared Bynum Scholarship Fund.
