To turn a negative into a positive I have opted to have it on the same day as WB5K on Oct.11th 2020. This will mean I do not have to struggle to find an open venue with everyone postponing events- we are locked in! Lakeshore Mini Ultra will start first then the 5K will start. So if you have a friend who thinks you are crazy for running for 4 hours they can still join in as a part of the WB5k (SEE TAB ON THIS WEBSITE or registration is also on Ultrasignup.com)
Lakeshore Mini Ultra has something for everyone! This is a 1-mile loop with a spectacular view of Lake Erie. Runners and walkers will have 4 hours to complete their personal goals on a paved, flat course all while choosing the direction of travel each loop. We will have a fully stocked, traditional style, aid station (this is why we run Ultras!).
All proceeds are benefiting The Herren Project, a non-profit organization that assists families and those suffering from addiction towards a pathway of recovery.
Kristie Sievers is a finisher of multiple 100 miler marathons and this is her first gig as a race director. She is motivated to create a first rate all inclusive running experience that gives back to the community in need.
The aid stations will have water, Tailwind sports drink, pretzels, potato chips, cookies, candy, sodas, and other goodies. In an effort to minimize trash and waste, all participants are encouraged to carry a water bottle. You may bring your own hydration and nutrition if you have specific dietary needs.
Build your own finisher medal. Each hour on the course gets you another piece to add to your unique take home prize
WE NEED YOU!
Former NBA player Chris Herren founded The Herren Project to help others navigate the road to recovery from addiction. We provide fee-free recovery resources and support services, increase awareness and lead initiatives focused on prevention and education for individuals and families
