Upcoming Event: Superior 5K Run / Walk on Friday 8/32 min read

I’m excited to announce a fun event next week in partnership with the Superior Chamber of Commerce. The 2nd Annual Run Superior 5K is coming up on Sunday, August 26th, and begins and ends at our Superior Town Center. To help prep for the race, I’m offering a course preview on Friday August 3rd – come on out to meet neighbors, run/walk the course as a group, and get expert tips and coaching. Whether it’s your first 5K or your fiftieth, I’m happy to help you prepare – or just be a fun running / walking buddy as we get through the morning workout 🙂


The Superior 5K course runs from Superior Town Center along the Coal Creek Trail, through Original Town, and around Founders Park before returning to Town Center. Our guided run / walk on August 3rd will meet at 7:00am in front of Sticks Coffee, and will follow the exact course, so you can learn where the turns and hills are. For those not yet ready to run / walk the full distance, I will also offer a 3K option that cuts off a few of the loops in Original Town so you can still get a feel for the start / finish.

Friday’s run / walk will finish with a cooldown stretch, and will wrap up just in time for August’s “First Friday” event at 7:45am, hosted this month by Mayor Pro-Tem Sandy Pennington. “First Fridays” are held monthly and offer residents the opportunity to meet with Town Trustees for coffee, pastries, and informal discussion. I love these events – they are a great forum to meet neighbors, learn about important issues, and voice your opinions to Trustees in a casual setting. The First Friday discussion runs from 7:45am-9:30am, but you can join for any portion that your schedule allows. I’m really excited for it!

And later in August, the actual Superior 5K will be hosted by the Superior Chamber of Commerce on August 26th at 8am. I ran it last year (race report here); it’s a fantastic event for the whole family to enjoy a healthy start to the morning while getting to know neighbors. For more details and to register for the race, click here. And, as a special bonus for supporters of Laura for Superior, you can email me for a coupon code that will take $5 off your registration fee! Whether or not you can make it to next Friday’s group run / walk, you’re welcome to use the discount code to save money on the race entry fee, and then come say hi to me at the race 🙂

I hope you can make it out to run / walk the course with me on August 3rd. To officially sign up and be alerted to any last minute updates (or invite your friends to join), click here for the event Facebook page.

Happy running!
