EHS Kick’n into Gear 5K

The Exeter High School Kick’n Into Gear 5K is more than a race; it’s a celebration.

As a race it’s everything you’d want in a 5K, with a blazingly fast course that finishes on the high school track–where cheers from the grandstand urge you to hit a higher gear as you kick it in to the clock.

But it feels like a celebration, with alumni and teachers and coaches running amidst current members of the EHS track team. John Parker, captain of the 1949 EHS track team finished strong and looked ready to run another 5K!

Come! Run with me now…

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 race 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.)

Margarita’s 5K

Margarita’s Cinqo de Mayo 5K is a relatively flat 5K….and the best part is the excellent post-race gathering, hosted by Margarita’s Mexican Restaurant.

Mexican food! Fine beer (or margaritas, if you prefer.) And all your running friends!

What could be better?

Come! Run the gently rolling course…and join me at the post-race party!

Margaritas 5K

The Margarita’s 5K is a flat 5K road race…followed by the best post-race food and drink I’ve encountered in well over a hundred road, trail, and mountain races. It’s part of the Locorunning “Will Run for Beer” race series, and an absolutely first-class experience.

I’m running with my camera, so you’ll get vivid, first-person views of the other runners…the food…and of course the beer!
