Friday night was a bit interesting with a downpour right before 7:00pm start time. Rob Maurer and his great staff of volunteers pushed the race back 15 minutes and the race went off without a hitch! Actually the temperature & humidity dropped significantly and it was a pleasant night for a run. Thanks to the over 40 Series participants who entered the race & supported this fine event.
Next up in the Series is the "Run for their Lives" 5K at Akron University with a unique indoor start on Akron University's indoor track and then a run around the campus and a finish by InfoCision Stadium and the indoor facility. Please join us on Saturday for this event! Also, a new event, the Lake Township FISH 5K Run/Walk will be held at Lake HS Stadium also on Saturday Morning. Then on Sunday, The Pro Football Hall of Fame Enshrinement Festival 2 & 5 Mile are held at the Pro Football Hall of Fame. This is the 6th Race in the Subway Challenge Series Elite Division for 2011 and a major race on northeastern Ohio running circuit.
