Marin Memorial Day Races - Run & Give

Run the 35th Annual Marin Memorial Day Races! On Monday, May 28, 2012, put your training to the test and run one of the fastest 10K courses in the Bay Area: the Marin 10K, a flat, certified loop that kicks into high gear for a dramatic finish in the College of Marin Stadium. Or challenge yourself to a walk, run, or racewalk in the Don Ritchie 5K. And don't forget the very popular and fun Youth Track Races for kids 12 and under! Get all the info at marinraces.com

And now a message from MMDR Publicist George Frazier:

As previously noted in the Tamalpa Gazette, all hell is likely to break loose during the running of the Marin Memorial Day Races, which—for those of you who are logic-impaired—will be held in Marin (Kentfield) on Memorial Day (May 28). Despite potential race mismanagement by RD Ripp, valuable swag, cool prizes, and sage advice will be available to those who open their hearts (and their wallets) for a couple of great causes.

Those causes are...

The MMDR’s Don Ritchie 5K raises money in Don’s name for pancreatic cancer research at UCSF. Don—a great Dipsea runner, a beloved teacher and principal at Marin Catholic, and an all-around wonderful man—lost his battle with pancreatic cancer three years ago. The MMDR has helped raise more than $17,000 for this vital research in the past two years. Donations in Don’s name can be made athttp://www.active.com/donate/mmdr2012

Lori Cohen—caring mom, devoted wife, tenacious runner, and popular Tamalpan—continues to courageously deal with ALS. Funds donated in Lori’s name will be used to fund quality-of-life care not covered by traditional insurance. Donations for Lori can be made at http://www.active.com/donate/mmdr2012lori. (Also be sure to check out the very cool clothing benefit for Lori - www.facebook.com/LCbenefit)

Now for the swag!

Anyone donating $25 or more to either fund will be entered in a drawing for lunch for two at the hot new Napa Valley restaurant Alex Italian Restaurant in Rutherford. The executive chef is Don’s nephew Nick Ritchie. Nick was recently featured in Food and Wine Magazine:http://www.alexitalianrestaurant.com/HOME.html

Any Tamalpan donating $50 or more to either fund (or in combination) will receive an MMDR shopping bag crafted by Lillie O’Reilly. These bags are both beautiful and functional. The Lillie Bags will be distributed on race day.

And finally, any Tamalpan donating $100 to either fund (or in combination) will receive an invitation to a private lecture by Dipsea Boy, “How Run Well on Race Day in the Dipsea.”

These are two very good causes! It’s time to tap leather!
