Don’t forget the Door County Half Marathon is set for next Saturday at 10:00 am. I copied the details from their website…
Presented by the Peninsula Pulse
The Door County Half Marathon will be held Saturday, May 2, 2009 at 10 a.m. The entire half marathon takes place on paved surfaces within Peninsula State Park. This US Track and Field certified course starts and finishes near Nicolet Beach. The course winds through the park giving runners an opportunity to experience breathtaking views of the water, shaded areas through the woods, challenging hills and ever changing scenery throughout Door County’s most popular park. MP3 players are allowed, however dogs and strollers are not allowed on the course. Walkers are welcome and should plan to finish by the time the course opens to traffic at 2:00 p.m.
All participants will receive a t-shirt, finisher’s medal as well as food and drink at the finish line. The overall top three male and female finishers and the top three master male and female finishers will receive awards and Door County prizes. The top three finishers in each age group will be awarded medals. Top finishers will be eligible for age group awards as well.
Nicolet Bay 5K Fun Run/Walk
The Nicolet Bay 5k begins at 10:30 a.m. just after the start of the half marathon. This race also starts near the beach and participants will follow the out and back course along the water on Shore Road going around the bay past Welcker’s Point, Eagle Bluff Lighthouse to Bluff Road and back. MP3 players are allowed, however dogs and strollers are not allowed on the course. Walkers are welcome.
All participants will receive a t-shirt as well as food and drink at the finish line. Prizes will be presented to the top 3 male and female finishers and the top master male and female winners. The top finishers will be eligible for age group awards as well.
If you are any type of runner this is the race for you… I checked the weather for Saturday and it should be in the mid-fifties and sunny. Not bad for a run in the park.
