It’s Olympic Day this Saturday! Celebrated by thousands of people all over the world, Olympic Day honors the founding of the Olympic Games by promoting fitness and well-being, while also encouraging fair competition and sportsmanship.
The Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation wants you to help continue the tradition and encourages you to join Breakheart Reservation’s 5K Run in Saugus on June 25, 2011. While the course can be very hilly in some parts, participants also have the option of doing an alternative 2-mile walk.
If you get tired, look around at the beautiful wooded area the course takes you through and congratulate yourself on your commitment to fitness. The run is unofficially timed, which means you might even have a chance to be rewarded at the small award ceremony hosted after the last runner crosses the finish line.
All participants should meet at the Christopher P. Dunne Visitors Center at 177 Forest Street at the Breakheart Reservation at 9 a.m. Get ready to be a champion!
