Upcoming Events

by John on July 26th, 2010

I’ll be posting in just a little bit about the last two runs I had – the corporate mile & Alyssa’s 5k (I enjoyed the latter MUCH more, and will actually have pictures to share). But, in the meantime, I thought I’d post my upcoming schedule from Active.com (a horrible event-finding search engine, but a great resource for training and registering for specific events).

  • Friday, September 10: The Great Prostate Cancer Challenge in Harrisburg, PA (City Island). My grandfather was a prostate cancer survivor and this is the first time that I’ll be running with my sister (who is totally going to kick my ass).
  • Sunday, September 19: Three Creek Century in Carlisle, PA. Hosted by the Harrisburg Bike Club with proceeds benefiting a local battered-women’s shelter – just a pretty ride in a beautiful time of year.
  • Saturday, October 2: Fall Down on the Trail 5k in Newville, PA. The Rails-To-Trails Conservancy is my all-time favorite charity (though I fully acknowledge that there are charities that do much more for the greater good).
  • Sunday, November 14: Harrisburg Marathon in Harrisburg, PA. I figure, if I’m registered for it, I might actually follow through.

The great thing is that I have some sort of musical entanglement later in the day after each of these (whether it be a wedding to play, a gig with Landslide, or a solo effort). I’ll be obnoxious about the music stuff on Twitter leading up to each (assuming the events are open to the public) and I’ll try to post my results as soon as I can.

  1. I totally expect to see a run or two in that mix back in Chester County. How far away and the Trails run? I have to watch that I don't let running interfere with dog agility. Priorities, you know.

  2. Oh, I'll totally be joining in any Chester County runs when I can — I had a blast at the 5k. Believe it or not, I get touch of jealousness that I can't run with you guys on the 5th, but then I think that I'll be at the beach & that emotion leaves my body.

    The Rails-to-Trail 5k is in Newville, which is about 15 minutes west from where I am, or 2 hours outside of Chester County.

  3. There are a gazillion runs around here. I'm jealous you're at the beach! Here are the links:

    Maybe we'll all do one in September?
