It is the last weekend before Halloween so I guess you can call it Halloween weekend. So on Sunday is the 1st Annual HomeGrown Halloween Parade and Monsters' Ball. If you haven’t run (pun intended) through the neighborhoods, there is the Decorate Decatur Halloween Contest. There are many a yards that go all out to decorate for Halloween. Just at the corner of Hibernia and Adair are several yards filled with decorations. At Twain’s on Saturday is the 3rd Annual Moonshiner’s Ball. This is just a few of the local events this weekend.
What else is going on this week?
There are a couple of local races this weekend and some of you are busy training for your fall marathons. One of which could be this weekend, good luck to you. There is much more races going on this weekend and here are some local ones. On Saturday are the Big Pumpkin 5K Run/Walk in Roswell, the Race for Smiles 5K & 1K Fun Run in Johns Creek, and the Start! Heart Walk 5K at Turner Field. For a longer run in Mableton is the Silver Comet Half Marathon/Marathon. Meanwhile on Sunday is the 2011 Atlanta Dog Jog at Piedmont Park. Also on Sunday, watch out for traffic for the ATC Atlanta Marathon & Marathon Relay.
As a continuing friendly reminder from now until it gets lighter, wear your lights, reflective vests, etc. so you can be seen during your run. Please run safely.
This Wednesday you are running through the Winnona neighborhood on Route 1. The run goes through Kirkwood, through McKoy Park, around Winnona, through Agnes Scott, and a long finishing straight on Ansley. This run has a lot of turns but it's all in the neighborhood, you can run your way out. The link to Route 1 is at the bottom of this e-mail. After the run it's off to Mojo's Pizza for food, drinks and trivia.
Enjoy your run Wednesday night. Thanks for making the Oakhurst Running Club one of the friendliest running club in Atlanta.
