Whaaaat a post about a race I haven’t run yet? This is because I want all of you southern California readers/bloggers to consider coming out to run this event — or to spectate it!
I’ve been running with Back On My Feet – Los Angeles for a little over a month now, and we’re having our first race on Saturday, December 21st at 8 am. The race is going to be held in Elysian Park and all 5 teams from LA will have runners competing. I am so excited for everyone (but I may be the most pumped for my team…Homeboy Industries).
I am so excited to see how our team does. I know they will love their first race! I’ll be running (and hopefully pacing some of the team). If you’re in the LA area, consider joining us — or at coming to cheer on the finishers at their first 5k.
Here are some details from the race website:
Join us for a fun and memorable 5k with a scenic cross country style course on a mix of dirt, grass and asphalt. The course is moderately challenging with about 3/4 of a mile of gradual hills. You will love the view of Los Angeles and the Dodger Stadium. Not only will you love the course but also the good cause of this race. Christmas 2 Give was created to make a change in the lives of others and this year we will fundraise for TNT the Leukemia and Lymphoma society.
Awards: Custom medals will be awarded to all finishers.
All event participants will also receive a t-shirt and a raffle ticket for a chance to win some great prizes.
You can register for the race HERE.
COUPON CODE RWU5k will save you $5 on registration!
See you out there! (And please reach out via my blog or social media for more info!)
