Reminder: Brendan’s Home Run 5K this weekend

Just a reminder that the 8th running of “Brendan’s Home Run,” sponsored by the Brendan Grant Foundation is this Sunday, June 21st (Father’s Day). The race starts and ends at the Belmont High School Track and follows a course down Cross St. then around and back on Channing Rd. You can download the registration form here. The entry fee is $20 now that the early registration deadline has passed. I’m planning to run it this year, for the first time, after schedule conflicts have prevented me from running it before. The race draws some pretty serious competition — the winning time last year for men was 15:25. Best time for women was 18:26. Festivities start at 9:30 am with a 5k charity walk. The gun fires at 10:00am for the 5K race and there are 400m and 800m races for the kids. Check it out.
