On the Run: A new low-key 5K for the North Shore

(Continued)

NSRRG is hoping for 25 to 40 runners the first few months, eventually growing to more than 50. “It’s not an overwhelming number, but a good sized group that would come back after the race and maybe stop by Not Your Average Joe’s, pick up race applications from us and pick up their running gear at NERC.”

The dates of future NSRRG 5K runs are July 29, Aug. 26, Sept. 30, Oct. 28, Nov. 25 and Dec. 30. Runners will receive a 15% discount off of their food order at Not Your Average Joe’s when they mention that they have participated in the run. For more info about the run, contact info@northshoreroadraceguide.com.
