April Fools Race

The April Fools Race in Salisbury, MA is an annual Rite of Spring.

You run four miles on an absolutely flat out-and-back course that lets you cheer for all your running friends you haven’t seen for months.   After the race there’s food, beer, and a raffle at the Winners Circle Bar…

…but before that, of course, we’ve got to run those four miles. So run with me now…


That hat could be trouble in a strong wind!

All right! Let’s get to the good stuff–an HD video that puts you right in the middle of this race. Go ahead! Click the ‘Play’ button below. (And be sure to view the video in Full-Screen, so you’ll see the photos in panoramic, high-resolution.)

Were you at this race–and if so, what did you like best about it? What could be improved?

(If you weren’t there, I hope these photos and HD video gave you a taste of the race…and I hope I’ll see you at a race next week.)

The An Ras Mor 5K is a tradition in Cambridge, hosted by the Somerville Runners. On this gray day, hundreds of runners flow down the streets between MIT and Harvard, and pretend it is Spring.


Do you think he sees me?

More cowbell!
