Itching to start racing? Get an early start on spring race season at the March Forth Against Crime  5K on Sunday at 9 a.m. at the Rotary Pavilion.

Proceeds benefit the Erie Crime Victim Center (a very worthy cause) AND…Erie Runners Club members receive a $2 discount on the $20 entry fee.

The premium is a knit hat and the organizers promise a roaring fire to keep you warm after the run!

Not enough to get you there? Consider this….you’d have a chance to support, cheer on, and encourage kids who are trying to get their lives back on track using the tool we ALL know has kept us sane — Running

We have participating with us again this year a program called Juveniles on the Run, where a group of juvenile offenders have been physically training with their parole officers to run a 5K.  It provides them with a sense of accomplishment as well as discipline (and health, of course), and was a huge success last year.  I believe we have approximately half a dozen juveniles who will be racing this year.

That makes me want to race AND bring my cowbell, but then…you know I’m a sucker for newbies.

The race application can be found here.
