2011 Little Manchester Road Race

Today was the second annual Little Manchester Road Race. Several hundred kids turned out on a chilly but sunny morning to run 1/2 mile, 1 mile, or 2 miles. Our family joined the crowds. Our daughter “ran” the 1/2 mile and our son ran the 1 mile. It was lots of fun. We saw a lot of smiles.

The race was held in conjunction with the Sports & Fitness Expo. The venue was the Bennett Soccer Field in downtown Manchester, Connecticut. Before the start, the children (and adults) were treated to a special event. Three sky divers leapt from an airplane and landed in the park, only 50 feet from where everyone was gathered. It was a nice start to the day.

The races were fun to watch. All of the kids got sweatshirts and medals. There were post-race refreshments. The volunteers were great. I hope they keep this tradition. Some of these kids will graduate to run in the big race on Thanksgiving Day.

He is learning the lines. He taught me a new saying after a particularly rugged, technical, and bouncy section. He said, "That was a serious chamois adjuster." #mountainbike #mountainbiking #teamhorstsports #teamhorstjuniorsquad
