The folks at 11th Hour Racing have teamed up with the Second Street Irish Society to host a new series of group runs and happy hours. Each run will be held the first Wednesday of every month with the inaugural run being June 1st.
If you are not familiar, let us introduce you to 11th Hour Racing. Mike Rowe founded 11th Hour Racing as a grassroots effort after taking care of a 35-year-old woman with stage four breast cancer who could not afford the oxygen she needed at home. The idea? To create a group of athletes and medical professionals that would race in order to raise money for patients and their families when they could no longer pay their bills.
The runs will start and end at the Irish Society (at 1937 South 3rd Street) beginning at 7:00 PM. Runners of all abilities as well as non-runners are welcome! There will be multiple routes back to the Irish Society ranging from 1-5 miles.
A $5 dollar wristband at the door will get you “happy hour” priced beer, and all proceeds will go to support cancer patients in our area.
