Summer is right around the corner, which means it’s 5K season! Don’t forget the City of Edgewood/Tri-State Running Company 5K this 4th of July.
Last year we had a record number of participants, and we are expecting this year’s race to attract over 1000 runners and walkers. This family friendly event features a kids’ fun run for children age 9 and under to get involved in the excitement. Plus, you will all love the complimentary bagels, fruit, and slushies post-race! Stick around after the 5K and enjoy the City of Edgewood Independence Day Parade.
We are excited to announce that Tri-State Running Company will be offering a $250 cash prize to both the male and female race winners this year! As usual, Tri-State Running Company gift cards will be given out to the top 3 finishers in each age group. With chip timing from start to finish and a pre-registration entry fee of only $20 (which includes a technical race t-shirt), you won’t want to miss this 5K!
If you are planning to participate in the City of Edgewood/Tri-State Running Company 5K this year and want to improve on your time from last year, consider joining our FREE training groups! We meet from the store on Saturdays at 9:00 AM and Tuesday nights at 6:30 PM. We also offer an “Impossible is Nothing” Couch to 5K program for those who are looking to run or run/walk their first 5K. Learn more at our website or just come out to a run!
