Register for the Poker Run, joker

The ERC’s Poker Run 5K — a low-key fun run/walk to start out the summer racing season.

Each finisher gets a poker hand and the best hand can earn you some nice prizes. Jokers earn you an instant prize. You’ll get your poker hand when you cross the finish line.

Word to the wise Poker Runner: Get there early for the best swag. This is a race in which there is no set premium…the silkscreener is simply instructed to “clean out his cupboard” and put the Poker Run race logo on whatever they have to get rid of.

It’s first-come, first-serve….so if get there early, you could score some really cool stuff — like a jacket or windbreaker.

If you get there late, you’re probably going to be stuck with size XL cotton gym shorts or a woman’s “tiny tee” that might fit your 6-year-old.

(It’s like a 2-for-1 race. Consider the race to the registration table a warm-up).

Race starts at 9 a.m. at Presque Isle Beach #1 (NOTE: Beach #1…not Rotary!).
