Date: Friday November 13, 2009
Event: The Welsh 5K Run/Walk
Location: Hugh Taylor Birch State Park
Address: 3109 East Sunrise Boulevard
Fort Lauderdale, Florida 33304
Time: Race/Walk starts at 9 AM

UPDATE 11/12/2009:
Temperatures for the race are predicted to be in the 60's so please dress accordingly. Us Floridians don't like temps below 80!

OK now Pat is a hardcore runner and he's always wanted to organize a road race. So what a great reason to do it--everyone will be in town, the weather should be nice, and this will be a healthy way to start the weekend.

Remember five kilometers doesn't translate into 26 miles it's only a hair over 3 miles. A piece of cake.

Birch State Park has a shaded, tree-lined one way road that runs through the interior. There are cars on the road but they should be very minimal. Mostly you'll find joggers, walkers, and roller-bladers. The run/walk will be nearly two complete loops around the park. Cool awards will be given out to everyone who participates.

Enter the park via Sunrise Blvd ($6.00 per vehicle / $2.00 if you walk or bicycle in). Park on the north end of the park (finish line) and we'll meet there. Pat and Meredith will have a pavillion rented out for the morning.
