The event starts at 3:30 p.m. Sunday with a preparty, followed by the ceremonial 0.0-mile “race” and an after-party and awards ceremony. “Runners” will be treated to a free beer from Fort George Brewery and food.
The purpose of the event — whose motto is “We Don’t Run So You Can!” — is to raise money to help fund Astoria Parks & Recreation fun runs and health and wellness programming that were cut at the beginning of the year. Entry to the event costs $25, and includes a race bib and a specially designed T-shirt. Interested individuals can sign up or get more information at http://bit.ly/2hAJsBi
