Our local running club is putting on their annual "Age-Handicapped 4M" race for the 4th of July.
Age-handicapped means that everyone gets a different start time adjusted for your age. (They also gender handicap, too.) So it's possible for very young/old to win - and that sometimes happens. Last year, the winner was a 67-year old!
Another fun thing is that everyone has to bring a prize and at the end of the race, each person (in the order of the finish) chooses a prize from the contributed prizes. As the website says:
"Past prizes have included 1970s baseball cards, a Simpsons dart board, a New Guinean sheath. More conventional prizes also are awarded, including cherry, apple, and blueberry pies in commemoration of the nation's birthday. "
Oh, and you cannot beat the price: $5! If you're in the DC/MD/NoVA area, join us!
