Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend. This week's event is part of a 5k series (with the exception of july 2nd which is a 2X2 relay). The first race will be this Thursday May 21st. The appeal of these races are a)you don't have to get up early on a weekend or for the ambitious types, the opportunity to maybe run 2 races in week.
b)small race size-under 200 people usually,you may even win your age group
c)possibility for some dirt! yay for mud...
