Each year the Secure360 conference hosts a 5/10k fun run with proceeds going to support a local charity. Join security professionals from across the Midwest at Upper Landing in St. Paul on September 27th for this years run: Race for ECHO. If you haven’t signed up yet, you can do it right now. Our race route this year runs along the Mississippi River in downtown St. Paul.
Prepare to feel good!
We know you’ve been doing a lot of sitting around blinking at a computer screen lately, who hasn’t? Well, guess what, this light exercise is going to feel good! Yes. It will. The Race for ECHO is geared to all fitness levels, so if you aren’t feeling the 10k run, go ahead and walk the 5k. You pick your distance and your pace. The fresh air and exercise will make you feel good.
Support a great cause!
While physical exercise is all well and good, the Race for ECHO will leave you feeling good in body and mind. Proceeds from the race go to support ECHO Minnesota, a nonprofit organization and leader in multi-language health, safety, civic engagement and emergency readiness communication. ECHO Minnesota connects Minnesota’s diverse populations with the information they need to stay safe and healthy. Supporting ECHO Minnesota will make you feel good.
Prepare to network!
Enjoying the fresh air, exercise and feeling of goodwill during the Race for ECHO is only part of the perks of joining us for this run/walk. We believe in bringing together security industry professionals from multiple disciplines and career paths to network and collaborate. Because this race is for fun and it’s not chip timed, we encourage you to go slow enough to carry on a conversation with the runners or walkers around you.
We know that socializing is not always a top skill for IT and security professionals, so we’re going to give you a few conversation starters to get your mouths running too:
- Who was your favorite speaker/session at Secure360 2014?
- Are you attending the 10th anniversary Secure360 conference next May?
- Who would you like to hear speak in at Secure 360 next year?
Want to participate in the Race for ECHO but not interested in committing to exercise? We have sponsorship and vendor spots open too! Pick from different levels to find what’s right for your organization.
We look forward to seeing you at the finish line!
