TC Running Company and Rocksteady Running are again teaming up to put on a series of short (5k – 7 mile) trail races around the Twin Cities this summer. The Endless Summer series kicks off this Wednesday with the Hyland 10k at 6:30 pm.
The race will start near the main visitors’ center at Hyland regional park in Bloomington. Registration is $25.00 in advance and $30.00 on race day; you can register online (for this and other races) here. There is also a mail-in registration option.
All participants will get a coffee mug with the race logo – a departure from last year’s pint glasses, because novelty pint glasses have become all the rage to the extent that everyone threw out their old novelty coffee mugs to make room for said glasses. So run all four races and you can throw out your novelty pint glasses and replace them with these:
They will also give you beer (or soda) and pizza. For more info on the Hyland race, including a course map, click on these words.
The Endless Summer series, now in its second year, has added a seven mile race at Lebanon Hills in August to last year’s lineup. The full race calendar consists of the following (all on Wednesdays at 6:30):
More on the race series can be gleaned from their race website. If you can’t or don’t wish to run, consider volunteering – you will still be entitled to the mug, pizza, and beer ordinarily reserved for competitors.
