Copper River Salmon Run + Entry giveaway!

Copper salmon_final

It’s that time again friends…time for the annual Copper River Salmon Run/Walk 5k on Saturday, May 21 in Lakewood sponsored by our friends at Pier W.

I’ve been really trying to get back into my running grove lately and this happening is the perfect goal to shoot for. The race celebrates Alaska’s Copper River salmon season, and proceeds benefit Cleveland’s Malachi House. The course is a great neighborhood race through some of Lakewood’s best tree-lined, century-home laden streets.

What makes the race so popular is that participants gather on Pier W’s patio afterward to relax and enjoy lunch, which is included in the registration fee. A lunch-only option also is available for those who can’t partake in the race. Chef Regan Reik also will join participants on the patio and will be on the grill, cooking up Copper River salmon burgers, vegan black bean burgers, standard all-beef burgers and turkey dogs for lunch.

Registration begins on race day at 9 a.m. at Lakewood Park’s Outdoor Pavilion (14532 Lake Ave.,Lakewood) and the race begins at 10am Sign up here!

Want to win a free race registration? Tweet me “@iheartclev I’d love to run/walk the @PierW Copper River Salmon Run, Saturday the 21st!”…It’s a quick contest, winner to be drawn tomorrow, May 10th. So get ready to lace up those sneakers, it’s gonna be a fun race & a delicious lunch.
