What are you doing Saturday May 11th?
If its something significant like laundry, grocery shopping, or washing the dog, then go right ahead & be practical…but if you’re ready for something different, how about the Shanty to Short’s Run?
Also known as the “S2S” it’s probably one of the only 5K/10K events that start on the top of a mountain & end up at one very cool brew pub. The mountain is at Shanty Creek in Bellaire MI where the race starts just outside the Lakeview Hotel. The very cool brew pub is the “on-its-way-to-being-World-Famous” Short’s brewpub.
This race has something for almost everyone…not a marathoner? Great, just run the 10K. Can’t run that far? No problem, just do the 5K. Not much of a runner at all…the best news is that once the race starts…its all downhill…literally! Add to that the fact that you end up at an establishment that specializes in big fun & great food, not to mention all kinds of yummy beers, you simply can’t go wrong.
This is the second year of the race & “apres” race festivities include an awards ceremony at the pub & of course the undeniably tasty quaffing of brews. The awards have been described a unique, fabulous & big fun & are awarded according to age & gender. Fees for the event are $18.00 if you pre-register or $24.00 on race day.
