Got a nice e-mail from Syd asking me to promote the “Kickin’ Assphault” running event that is coming up in June:
On Saturday, June 28, 2008 the 2nd Annual “Kickin Assphault” ½ Marathon will be held. This year there have been three new events added with a 10k, a Kid’s ½ Marathon and a 1.1 mile fun run. Walkers are welcome!
The 10K will start the events at 6:00 a.m. at Giant Springs State Park and the ½ Marathon will start 15 minutes later. At 9:00 the Kid’s ½ Marathon and Fun Run will start at the trail south of the Heritage State Park Campground. For more information, visit the assphaultkickers site. Registration forms are available at Gold’s Gym, the Knicker Biker, Universal Athletics or the Peak. Participants can also register at active.com.
Organizer Syd Rogers encourages participants to register early as she expects some events to reach capacity. “This is a great family event that includes an event for everyone! It is great to get the kids involved in fitness with the added benefit of raising money for the community. In my opinion, the River’s Edge Trail is one of Great Falls’ greatest assets.”
