I got an email today for an awesome event that I'm really excited about! On July 4th in Lawrence, KS the inaugural Mass Street Mile. It's a one mile running event in downtown Lawrence, KS. For those of you who aren't ready to tackle a 5k I think this is a great way to get a taste of what it's like to run a race but since it's only a mile it's not so overwhelming.
This race is part of the Tour of Lawrence event that is being held from July 2-4. The Tour of Lawrence is a weekend of individual Pro-AM USA Cycling races, children’s races/events & live music organized in partnership with Free State Racing and promoted and made possible by the Lawrence Convention & Visitors Bureau held July 2-4, 2010 in the city of Lawrence KS.
Sounds like it'll be a great weekend to be a Jayhawk! :)
