Another race added to the calendar last minute: the Great Prospector Beer Run in Nevada City on Sunday, October 13th. The ~5k race is held at the Ol' Republic Brewery, and comes with lunch, a beer and a logo pint glass! It appears to be sponsored by The Union newspaper, and organized by the Sierra Trail Blazers.
Despite the five hours I have on my training plan for Saturday, and the Cougar Hash House Harriers run I am tacking onto the end of it, the thought of running such an event had me dashing for my credit card. Supporting my two favorite activites (running and drinking beer) in my own community is too convenient to pass up!
