Novi Running Fit Hosts 11th Annual Super 5K Road Race

Novi Running Fit Hosts 11th Annual Super 5K Road Race

Get off your duff, and get ready to run! February 7, 2010 marks the 44th annual American Professional Football Super Bowl game and the 11th consecutive Super 5K Road Race, which will start and finish near Running Fit's newest location within the Novi Town Center.

Running Fit completed their move of the Novi location shortly after last year's race. The new store resides on Eleven Mile Road, two doors down from Bonefish Grill facing Grand River Avenue. It is larger and in a more visible location within the Town Center.

The weather in years past has varied from sunny and mild to frigid, snowy and windy. Race director, Randy Step, says that the race has seen growth each year and expects more that 2,000 participants in 2010. Custom Super 5K finisher pint glasses will be awarded to the first 1,500 finishers, and football fan or not, he welcomes and encourages one and all to come on out and "earn the best spot on the couch!"

No matter where competitors finish, an abundance of post race food including hot wings served by the "Hooter's girls" will be waiting for all of the participants at the finish.

If you're not in shape to partake in a 5K event, Step has that covered too. Winter 2010 Running 101 classes will begin in January at Running Fit stores located in Novi and Ann Arbor.

Novi store manager Rachel Ingle assures that while winter conditions can be challenging at times, safety is a priority. Ingle elaborates as she explains that classes run on maintained sidewalks in the Town Center in addition to having the ability to seek shelter under awnings that provide cover from Michigan's imminent snow.

Additionally, as in previous years, race participants can anticipate the opportunity to take advantage of great bargains in the store race weekend!

Start the New Year off right. Whether you're new to running or an old vet, having a goal, running with friends and engaging in a little competition keeps us fresh and begging for more.
