Neighborhood Runs Coming UpPosted on Thursday, February 25th, 2010 at 9:35pm.
Yes, the beachfront MB 5k's in Summer and Winter are great, there's a friendship run/walk in October and, of course, the granddaddy of them all, the MB Hometown 10k.
As a newbie to MB, you'd be forgiven for thinking that everyone in town is a runner.
Where your blog author grew up (wherever that was), we simply didn't have such things. Nor did they shut down our main thoroughfares for a renowned bike race. And fireworks were usually in July, not at Christmas. But we digress.
Here are the upcoming school fundraiser runs:
Martyrs 5k: This Saturday (Feb. 27) at 8am is the first school fundraiser run of the season, a 5k benefiting American Martyrs School. It's the 30th year for the race. Online signups are over, but Friday you can register at O'Donnell Hall (at Church & 15th) almost all day, and also there Saturday morning from 6:30-7:30. Sorry to say it looks like rain Saturday, but that can be terrific for dedicated runners.
Be sure to register online before next Wednesday to get the $25 rate and reserve a T-shirt with this adorable design. Organizers promise more finish-line, post-race fun this year.
When Grand View posts a date and info for their run, we'll note that as well. That one looks like a landmark, too – the 15th year. Usually it's in the first week of June.
