Come celebrate Earth Day this year by joining us in The Race Against Extinction 5K Race and Bear Cub Kids 1K run. We are looking for Cheetahs (experienced and first-time runners), Tortoises (walkers), Gazelles (inline skaters), Kangaroos (parents with strollers), Wolf Packs (runners or walkers with their pets)!, Bear Cubs (children under 12 for the 1K) and Sloths (those who cannot or will not be running, skating, walking or moving in general on April 19th but would like to support and help protect their fellow species!).
The race begins at 11:00 AM on Sunday, April 19, 2015 in scenic Artesani Park just off the Charles River in the Boston/Brighton/Cambridge area. Proceeds will be donated to the World Wildlife Fund. Early Registration includes a VERY cool shirt as well. Come join us and make a positive impact for Earth Day this year!
We encourage all types of athletes and non-athletes to participate. If you have never run a timed race before, here is your chance. If you think that you are fast you have a great chance at winning one of our coveted lost and found and recycled Hub Cap trophies by placing first in one of our many categories. The Race Against Extinction tries to ensure that its events are as green as possible.
We look forward to seeing you Sunday, April 19th on the Charles! There is limited space so please hurry and sign up as soon as you can so that you do not miss out on all of the fun!
