Kick off summer running with some fun trail racing, food, and a book signing! On Tuesday, June 12, come out for the Quarry Road Summer Race Series, but stick around for a club social and a book signing with Strider and ultrarunner Mike Brooks.
Tuesday, June 12, is the first race of the Quarry Road summer trail-running series in Waterville. After the kids fun run at 5:30 p.m. and the 3K at 6 p.m., we'll have a casual social with food and drinks to share. The club will provide some sandwich makings and drinks. Bring your favorite post-race potluck (a main or side dish, an appetizer, snack, or dessert) to share if you're able.
Plus, Mike Brooks, our 2016 Strider of the Year, will be on hand with copies of his new book Badwater and Beyond: A Thousand Races, Places & Faces. Through his incredible running efforts, Mike has raised more than $60,000 for children's nonprofits, with proceeds of this book going to support Special Olympics.
Bring a copy for him to sign or get yours there.
Racers, runners, walkers, spectators, friends—all are welcome!
We hope you'll join us on Tuesday, June 12, at Quarry Road Trails in Waterville.
Rain Date is Tuesday, June 19, if the race is postponed due to weather.
