Things To Do- The Lone Gull 10K

The second annual Lone Gull 10K is September 21,2008.  I’m not a runner but from what I understand because the have such a huge sponsor in Nike, you pay $18 if you register before September 15th or $24 if you register September 15th and later for your entry fee, it entitles you to a $40 Lone Gull 10K technical jersey if you are within the first 350 people to register, and breakfast.  That’s a pretty good take my friends!

There is a sign up sheet for race day volunteers at The Lone Gull Coffeehouse in the heart of Downtown Gloucester if you would like to participate in that way.

The course starts and ends at Good Harbor Beach.

Here’s more info from the source-

Come join us for a great run in the historic fishing town of Gloucester, MA.  Race along the backshore of Gloucester and enjoy great views of the Atlantic Ocean and Eastern Point.  This scenic seaside course has slight rolling hills and is USATF Certified.  Donations and registration fees will go towards the Lone Gull 10K Charitable Trust.

Free Nike long-sleeve technical tees to first 350 registered runners!

Prize money will be awarded to the top 3 male & female runners and the top 3 men’s & women’s teams.  Merchandise awards will be awarded to age group winners.
