Mother’s Day 5K

Hey, all you mother runners…..Don’t forget about the ERC’s Mother’s Day 5K.  I signed my girls up and said: No whining…this is your gift to me!

The race is on Mother’s Day, Sunday, May 12 (yep….mark that on your calendars now, guys!) and it starts at 9 a.m. at Beach 1 at Presque Isle State Park. There’s also a non-competitive 1/2 mile run/walk at 8:30 a.m.

Event Description: The course starts and ends on the Lake Road at Beach #1. The 1/2 mile race will feature a non-timed 1/4 mile out and back race friendly to wheelchairs, walkers, baby strollers, children and Seeing Eye dogs. 5K participants are encouraged to come early and line the course to cheer on the 1/2 mile runners.

Proceeds benefit the Erie Runners Club Scholarship Fund, The Beach 1 Pavilion Fund and the Dr. Gertrude A. Barber Foundation.

Registration is $20 for ages 13 and over and $15 for ages 12 and under. Online registration (no additional fee) will close Tuesday, May 7, 2013.

More info on the race later…and, hopefully, a preview of the shirt, too! Reportedly, the shirt has a special feature that will allow you to personalize it with the name of a person you want to honor.

P.S. I’d love to talk to some mother runners….have you always done this race with your kids…or your mom? post a message or email me at zipdang22 at aol.
