If the weather forecast is right, the ERC Snowflake 5K will live up to its moniker on Saturday. The race starts at 10 a.m. in front of the Rotary Pavilion. Note, however, that the pre- and post-race festivities (and day of race registration) will be held at Cabin #2 in the Waterworks Area at Presque Isle State Park, next to the Rotary.
Word to the wise: There are no restrooms at the cabins, but…the restrooms will be open in the Rotary Pavilion.
The first 200 registered will get a gift boxed set of two 9 oz. stemless wine glasses imprinted with the race logo. Awards will be given in 5-year age groups.
Day of race registration is $20 and starts at 8:30 a.m. at Cabin #2. Application & information here.
This year, race proceeds will benefit the Northwest Pa. ALS Association (Lou Gehrig’s Disease), The Shriner’s Hospitals for Children, and Orphan Angels animal rescue.
Word to the wise, part 2: Bring your ice cleats and/or Yak tracks. Presque Isle State Park does not use any salt on their roadways…so it’s likely there will be ice. If we’re lucky, there will be snow (which provides traction), too.
