Our good friends over at Hip Baby Gear are excited to announce their sponsorship of the Beach to Beach 5K Run/Walk on Sunday, May 18th from 10 am until 12 pm.
This race is being coordinated by the Junior Aid Society and will benefit women's and children's charities on the North Shore of Boston. Serious, as well as amateur racers and walkers, are encouraged to come and join in the fun. Families with children in strollers or on foot are also welcomed. If you need a "loaner" stroller to participate, all Hip Baby Gear floor model strollers are available for use!
Pre-registration is $17 for adults ($20 race day) and $8 for children ($10 race day). Children ages 5 and under are free. On-line registration will be available through Active.com. You may also pick up a registration form at Hip Baby Gear, 80 Washington Street, Marblehead or Crunchy Granola Baby at 72 Washington Street, Salem.
The race will be professionally timed by North Shore Timing and the first 150 registrants will receive a Beach to Beach 5K tee shirt.The starting/finishing line is Devereaux Beach in Marblehead. The race route will take participants south along Atlantic Avenue to Preston Beach and then loop back heading north to Devereaux. All children will receive a medal for participation and trophies will be awarded for finishers in a number of categories.
