2011 Veteran’s Day Run

 

The weather is cool, the leaves are turning and it’s a great time to run in the Tri-States.   Whether you’re embarking on your first 5K or your 50th, there are so many oportunities to try an event, that you just can’t miss!

November 3rd:  Tri-State Warrior Dash 5K, 10K or 1 Mile Fun Run/Walk

This event has been renamed from the national Veteran’s Day run from last year, but comes to you from the same great crew that put together a fun race last year. I ran in the 11K last year (This year it’s a 10K.  11 was for 2011) and it was actually one of my very best runs.  Read about last year’s event here and sign up for it here! Proceeds benefit area veterans.

November 10th: Beat Beethoven 5K

Says the website, “At 8:00 am Beethoven’s 5th Symphony will begin… can you finish the 5K before it ends?”  The symphony is in the neighborhood of 30 minutes, so you’ll have to hurry!  Register here.  Proceeds benefit Symphony of Trees…which benefits local music programs.

November 22nd: Quincy YMCA Turkey Run

It’s a Quincy Classic! The 33rd Annual Thanksgiving Day Run/Walk includes 5K and 10K runs or 1 mile and 5K Non-competitive Leisure walk options. There’s also a family rate for up to 4 runners.  Proceeds benefit the YMCA.  Read about my 2011 Turkey Run here and sign up for the race here.

December 1st:  Ring a Bell Run, 5K run or walk

The Jingle Bell run for the Arthritis Foundation is not making a return to Quincy this year, but the Kroc Center is filling the gap.  The new Ring a Bell Run Proceeds supports The Salvation Army annual Christmas Campaign, which provides Christmas food baskets, toys for children, and the community Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners. These funds also support year round services such as food pantry, rent and utility assistance and emergency shelter for those in crisis in our community.  Sign up for the run by clicking here!
