AND THE WINNER IS.....
Thanks to everyone that entered! If you didn't win, I still hope you will register for the race!! :)
Amazing Race is coming back to Somerville.
Wait wait! That sounds misleading.
THE Amazing Race the show is not coming back to Somerville, but AN Amazing Race is.
I had a BLAST at the inaugural race last year. If you didn't just click on "last year" and read the race recap, let me tell you it is the race where I set my current 5k PR of 21:59. Umm yeah so this race means A LOT to me. Plus it is less than a 5 minute walk from my house.
The race is a run or walk and is open to runners and families of all ages and abilities.
Additionally, there will be a Children's Fun Run (age 9 and under) before the race with all kids getting a medal! Can I pretend to be an 8-year old? ;) I love a medal.
I will say the Fun Run was adorable to watch pre-race last year.
But more about the 5k:
The Race to the Row will run through the Assembly Square District and along the Mystic River, ending with a fun-filled post-race party with food and drinks served from the newest local restaurants and live music supplied by the IT Band! All proceeds will benefit the East Somerville Main Streets program (funding East Somerville business visibility and bolstering the community at large) as well as Somerville TrackPAC (provides college scholarships for Somerville High School students).
Following last year's race I enjoyed free Harpoon beer and food courtesy of Burger Dive. I know they will be offering free food and drink to participants again this year, but details have yet to be released.
The Assembly Row and race area are easily accessible via public transportation and offer ample parking options for those choosing to drive.
Now that I have you all drooling over the fun ... it is time for the best part:
I have a FREE race entry to give away!
