Come run the Forever Young Run & Walk in Placitas this April 7th at 9:00am
Sponsored by the Albuquerque Road Runners
The first 150 registrants will receive a long-sleeve shirt!
This race is a celebration in memory of Albuquerque Roadrunner member Charlie Young, an avid runner, cyclist and outdoorsman, who was killed in a cycling accident in Colorado in August 2004. Since Charlie always ran without a shirt even in the dead of winter, shirtless (not topless) participants are given a two buck refund at the finish line.
Charlie lived in Placitas, so the race is held on a dirt loop course in Placitas with rolling hills in a beautiful pinon/juniper area. Choose a 10K run or a 3 mile run/walk.
Awards will be presented to top 3 finishers in each category of each event. Refreshments, including breakfast burritos, will be served!
A portion of proceeds benefits the Placitas Community Library.
