Lincoln Running Company is hosting a 5K fun run tonight (Facebook link) to help raise funds for victims of the Boston Marathon bombing. A $20 cash or check donation gets you into the run, plus a t-shirt. Runners will leave in waves from Lincoln Running Company (12th and Q) starting at 6:30pm.
Note that this really is a "fun run". It's entirely non-competitive of course, and roads won't be closed so you'll have to obey traffic laws. I can't find a course description, but at one point I heard they were going to utilize the Antelope Valley bike trail. Maybe run out to Devaney Center and back?
The forecast looks pretty crummy but local runners won't be fazed by that. After all, this entire spring has been pretty blah for outdoor training. What's one more cold, wet run?
For the record, I'm not sure yet if I'll be attending. I'm scheduled to referee a soccer match, but I'm certain it will be cancelled due to unplayable conditions. It's possible, however, that I'll be moved to a different game being played on turf. If I wind up without a game, I'll be at the run. I hope to see some of you there.
