Get Your Running Shoes! HRU's 5K Run4Fun is on Saturday, March 24 in Springfield MA



Spring has arrived, and that means it is road race season.  You can get your running program in gear this month by starting with the HRU 5K Run4fun on Saturday, March 24, 2012.  Check-in begins at 9:30 AM.  The race starts at 10:30 AM.

The race kick-off is at Samuel's Sports Bar/Basketball Hall of Fame.  The course is a flat loop that goes along the Connecticut River and back through downtown Springfield.  Be sure to reach the finish, because Samuel's Sports Bar will host the post-run party!

Race entry fee is $25 for preregistration; $35 day of the race (cash only).  Runners and walkers are welcome.  There is also a 1-mile walk.   The first 100 registrants will receive an event t-shirt.  Prizes will be awarded for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place female, male, and wheelchair winners.

Teams may also register as a group for $100 for up to 10 youth in team jerseys.

HRU (which stands for Human Resources Unlimited) is a non-profit organization located in Springfield, Massachusetts. HRU serves mentally and physically challenged individuals.  A major component of HRU's mission includes helping their clients find the means to secure gainful employment in their community. All proceeds from the 5K race will go to support HRU's Changing Habits, Transforming Lives program.

Pre-register for the race online.

Kathryn, most runners don't need excuse to put their running on, and this event looks fun!   We had a "running of the green" today early while it was still a bit chilly!

Josh:  Thank you - nice of you to stop by and read about this road race.

Joan:  We had a Celtic 5K in our area too.  Great weather but exceptionally breezy.  It was a nice way to kick off the running season.

Sounds like a great year to start off spring - I'm seeing the daffodils almost ready to bloom - so should be a pretty run too!  Thanks for keeping us abreast of the events in your area!
