The Emmaus Youth Track Camp starts today and runs all week over at Emmaus High School. I love the fact that track camps are offered for our young, budding talent, especially in such a strong and active running community such as ours. If any of you have children attending this camp I’d love to hear how things went!
Tomorrow night (7/25) is the Peddler’s Village 5k. This is a night-time race which you can walk as well, making this a great family night out. Also available is a Fun Run for kids aged 10 and under. Proceeds benefit the Heart Institute of Doylestown Hospital.
WHO EVER SAID RUNNING AND BEER DON’T MIX?
Be sure to stop by The Finish Line this Thursday for Brooks Pint Night. Beginning at 3:00 pm stop by the shop for Brooks deals and get a Brooks pint glass with your purchase. They’ll even fill it up with beer. Not too bad, huh?
There isn’t much racing action taking place locally this weekend … BUT … next week you can hit up the free LVRR Summer Series 5k in Lehigh Parkway on Wednesday night, and follow that up with the Blue Eagle 5k in Nazareth on Saturday morning (my personal favorite for that fast 5k you’ve been training for this summer). Head out to Reading on Sunday for the Grings Mill Run – a 5k/10k advertised on a 99% flat course with zero traffic. Sounds like a great weekend to me!
Don’t forget that the Olympics begin this Friday with the Opening Ceremonies! Track and Field events begin on Friday, August 3. I’ll post an update later this week of dates and times of events for easy reference.
