I plan to work on a race calendar for this blog, but I simply haven't had the time. Honestly, I should be doing something besides updating this blog right now, but I'd rather be doing this. :) Anyway...
Make your plans to race this weekend! There are several options in the Tennessee Valley this weekend.
Saturday at 8:00 AM right here in Athens is the inaugural Chick Fil A 5k. This race takes advantage of the old Summer Sun 5k course which is certified. The race starts and finishes at the Wellness Center on Washington Street. If you haven't registered yet, stop by Chick Fil A in Athens Friday between 10:00 AM and 8:00 PM to sign up. Race day registration begins at 6:30 AM on Saturday at the Athens Limestone Wellness Center on Washington Street. The fee is $30.
In Decatur beginning at 8:00 AM is the annual River City Run 10k, 5k, and half mile fun run. This is a long standing race that is a very popular and well run event. The 10k is FAST! So, if you're looking for a fast 10k, you won't find a faster one around. The 5k is a new addition to the event. You can register at TC Almon Recreation Center at Point Mallard Park from 5:30 to 7:00 PM Friday or on race day beginning at 6:45 AM.
The Run for Gabby 5k begins at Hampton Cove Middle School Saturday morning at 8:00 AM. This race runs along the Big Cove Creek Greenway in Hampton Cove. You can register at Fleet Feet in Huntsville on Friday from 10:00 AM until 7:00 PM. Race day registration begins at 6:45.
On Sunday afternoon at 2:00, the Hartselle Art Studio is hosting the Art in Motion 5k. The race starts and finishes at the Burleson Fine Arts Center in Hartselle. You can register at Fleet Feet in Huntsville on Thursday. For more information and for an entry form, visit the website, http://hartselleartstudio.com/.
