Upcoming Races in Familiar Places

Seen recently on Davidson College's cross country trail.  My kind of pace!

As we slowly descend into the morass of the summer doldrums we find that the there are fewer local races.  However, there are someworth adding to your list.

  • China Grove 5K Main Street Challenge:  A local fave that's considered to be one of the fastest around, it's a straight out-and-back in downtown China Grove.  Starts at 9pm on Friday, June 11th, and the first 500 entrants will receive a Dri-Fit technical t-shirt.
  • Bethel Hill Moonlight Boogie and Boogie Marathon:  Races like these 50- and 26.2-mile options lend credence to the mystique of running in the Mangum Track Club's territory.  You might think that a marathon and ultra that take place, according to the website, in the middle of nowhere would be sparsely attended, but it's sold out this year.
  • Latta Triathlon:  Taking place on Saturday and Sunday,  this event has only 34 open spots left as of this morning (June 9).  
Recall the parable of the tortoise and the hare as you run this summer.  Take it nice and easy.
