In the mood for a 5K, you can get your fill this wekeend with three 5Ks in as many days.
Saturday, June 22 (9 a.m.) — The Run for Shelter 5K is an Erie Runners Club race to raise money for the Beach No. 1 Shelter project. The race starts — where else! — Beach No. 1 at Presque Isle State Park. This is a great race and a great cause to support because, let’s face it, we runners have PLENTY to gain by supporting this pavilion project (you know…like a warm, dry place to congregate before & after Beach No. 1 races!!! $25 day of race. Application here.
Sunday, June 23 (8 a.m.) — The Alex Johnson Memorial 5K XC race starts and finishes at the Greene Township Building on Tate Road in Greene Township (Tate Road is just a couple miles up the road from the i-90 Wattsburg exit). Take note of the XC in that race name — this is a cross-country race, so…you’ll be hightailing it through grass and, given the rain we’ve been having, a wee bit of mud, too. $25 day of race. Application here.
I triple-dog-dare you to do ALL of them! (And if you do…you need to tell me so I can give you your props!).
