5K @ 8:00 AM; 1M @ 9:00 AM ***Our racing mission continues to be to produce affordable, hedonistically fun & athletically competitive races, that are technically sound (correctly-measured courses with minimum turns and visible distance – mile or Km – markers), that also benefit some charity(-ies) with a populist & gender parity focus – for the average runner/walker (including the novices) and also for the seasoned, serious racer.**** This race kicks off the Summer Scintillation Troika (SST) series as its first leg – the Mid-Year Muse & Motion IX 5K / 1 Mile Run/Walk. The race offers an invitingly beautiful trail course at River Legacy Parks in Arlington . As you embrace the inspiration of a philosophic muse along the course -- literally enacting music and poetry in motion -- your physical motion will be tracked properly. Donated new books age-appropriate for 3rd - 8th Graders are encouraged for H.O.P.E. (Helping Our Pupils Excel) Reading/Tutoring program – which caters to our 4th Grade through 8th Grade kids, all of them seeking their own muses. So come for the fun and for the charity…. *** By the way, as in past years, there will be a special recognition award for everyone that registers for all three SST races…. *** Net proceeds from the race will benefit H.O.P.E. (Helping Our Pupils Excel) Reading/Tutoring program….***Jun 28 8:00 AM Mid-Year Muse & Motion XI 5K / 1 Mile Run/Walk, River Legacy Parks, Arlington, TX 76006 817-265-4578 / www.runningintheusa.com/jeph Benefits H.O.P.E.
