We all know there are many, many races out there, but there's one classic race that offers uniquely crafted, hand-made pottery awards, cash prizes to top finishers, dri-fit T-shirts, plenty of good food and cold beverages, AND...the opportunity to walk home with a check for $750 or $250, just for finishing the race!!!
If you live near Chambersburg, a small town in the beautiful region of south-central Pennsyvania, near historic Gettysburg, you owe it to yourself to run the 28th Annual Tom Ausherman Memorial 5-Mile race.
The course is flat, fast, and USATF certified. The race is superbly organized by John Ausherman, a veteran runner, and former 2:24 marathoner. People of the town are friendly, the post-race party is awesome, and the unique awards are plentiful.
Two weeks from tomorrow, Saturday, August 8, at 8:30 a.m., the 28th Annual Tom Ausherman Memorial 5-Mile run will be held. At the conclusion of the awards ceremony, a random prize of $750 and $250 will be awarded to two lucky race finishers. Hope to see you at this great race.
