Local Races this Weekend

Fall racing is underway.  Some of you may be heading off to faraway places, such as the Bank of America Chicago Marathon or the New River Trail 50k.  If you're staying put this weekend, you can still hit the road with one of these races:

  • Historic Salisbury's OT5k, coinciding with Historic Salisbury Foundation's tour of historic home, will be held on Saturday, Oct. 10th in downtown Salisbury.  There will also be a 1/2-mile family fun run, so bring the kids.  -Thanks, @scubasue09!
  • Home Run 2009, also this Saturday, brought to you by the Regional HIV/AIDS Consortium.  The race will take place on the McAlpine Creek Greenway 5k cross country course and will also offer a one mile fun run.
  • Hopebuilders 5k, this Saturday, at the Carolinas Medical Center, just south of downtown (or is it uptown?).  There will be a post-race family festival.
  • 5th Annual Oktoberfest Footrace 10k & 5k, in downtown Hickory.  All net proceeds will be sent to the Greater Hickory Cooperative Christian Ministries.
  • United Way Run for Life - Fun Run/5K/10K, this Saturday in Concord.  Suitable for everyone, but if you're a firefighter, police officer, or EMS person you are eligible for a special award if you're the fastest.
  • “Wake the Library” 5K & Fun Run, Wake Forest University, Winston-Salem.  -Thanks, @scubasue09!
Have a great weekend, whether you race or not.
