Ooh, Racy!

Here’s two more great events to motivate you in the coming months:

nylogoRevlon Run/Walk For Women

When: Saturday, May 2

Where: Begins in Times Square and ends in Central Park

What: A 5K (3.1-mile) run and/or walk for people of all abilities that benefits research to end women’s cancers

Three reasons why you should do it: 1. You get to walk around Times Square like you own the place (it’s shut down to traffic for the entire morning, which is pretty cool). 2. It’s really inspiring to see all of the cancer survivors who take part in the event, and it’s really sobering to see all of the people who run and walk in memory of someone they’ve lost. 3. Because it’s co-sponsored by Revlon, there’s free make-up in the goodie bags. Score!

The American Cancer Society’s George Washington Bridge Challengegwb-logo-2009-resize-101

When: Sunday, June 14

Where: Fort Lee, N.J.

What: A 5K (3.1-mile) walk/run OR a 10K (6.2-mile) walk/run OR a 4-, 10-, 25-, 33- or 63-mile bike ride. (You have so many choices!) The event is a salute to local cancer survivors and their families.

Three reasons why you should do it: 1. All routes cross the George Washington Bridge, which is closed to traffic during the event. When else are you going to be able to walk or run down the middle of that thing? 2. With so much variety available in the courses, there’s got to be a route that’s good for you! 3. After all of your hard work, refuel at a catered post-race picnic at Allison Park. (Psst: Haul Buns also hears that some former contestants from NBC’s The Biggest Loser will be on hand to take part. (ETA: Thanks to a Haul Buns source, we now know that Ryan Rodriguez, Maggie King, Jenn Widder, Jay Krueger, Nicole Brewer and Damien Gurganeious are scheduled to appear.)

Run Wild!

tigerrunIf you’re free Saturday, April 25, here’s a cool run/walk that’s actually a bargain in disguise. The Wildlife Conservation Society’s Run For The Wild 5K takes place in the Bronx Zoo! The $30 entry fee gets you an event tee shirt, admission to the run/walk, snacks after the run AND admission to the zoo for the day — plus admission to the Congo Gorilla Forest. Sounds like a deal to me.

Here’s a tip, though: Don’t try to keep pace with the jaguars. Those buggers will make you feel like a real sloth.

I’ll be there. If you will, too, give me a shout!
