Summer’s End Fun Run

The end of August not only signals the formal end to the hottest of seasons, but also for the Runner’s Edge Summer’s End Fun Run. The annual 5K (3.1 miles) is on Aug. 30 and starts at 6 p.m.

I’ve run this event in the past. It’s casual and fun. You run from the Runner’s Edge Boca Raton store (3195 N. Federal Highway) and return to a post-race party complete with hamburgers, hot dogs, beer, cake, snacks, music and free drawings. If you’re lucky, you might win a pair of shoes.

It’s only $10 to join in, but there’s an additional $2 fee for signing up online. The first 150 to register get a t-shirt. There are no awards, timing chips or water stops. It’s not meant to be a competitive event, but rather a fun run and eating frenzy.

And before the run, you may want to head over to Runner’s Edge for special store savings.
