Happy Memorial day, friends! I hope you are enjoying your long weekend. The Calhoun Beach Running Club celebrated yesterday with the 4th Annual Memorial Day Pub Run!
This event is not a sanctioned run, nor is it open to the public (CBRC members only) but it does have a very sophisticated website: http://memorialdaypubrun.com. Basically, you run from bar to bar, having one beer at each bar. The entire course is just under four miles, ending with a BBQ at our coach’s house. Coach Paul does an amazing job planning this event. Again in 2013, the race went very smoothly, and was a big success!
I give this race a 10/10 in the pub run category.
You can find lots of additional information on the website, so I’ll do this recap primarily via pictures!
Start Line: There were corrals for VIPS, elites, and “commoners”
Packet Pickup: Every runner received an official 2013 Pub Run Pint Glass!
Star-spangled banner to start the race.
Course Marshalls: Don’t mess with these guys!
The first stop on this year’s pub run was Stella’s.
