The Concord Celebration
We want to thank 101.5 FM The HAWK for the support of our Run Across New Hampshire. These folks are going to broadcast our location all weekend long with updates every hour (+/-) of our run across the state. So make sure you tune in to get updates of our progress as we move along. But thats not all....
Thanks to the cooperation of our friends at Eastern Mountain Sports (Concord, NH), They along side with The HAWK will be holding a huge celebration as they await our arrival from the west. The Concord EMS is located on Ft. Eddy Rd in Concord, NH. From 6-9pm on Saturday, October 18th - The HAWK will be awaiting our arrival. They'll have live music, a bounce house from Bounce Around, food from The Smoke Shack plus you guessed it... Raffle tickets to win the always sexy 2007 Honda Shadow 600 being raffled off by National PowerSports Distributors. Thats still not all... it's club days at EMS. If you belong to any outdoor club or organization; you can reap the benefits of 20% off your purchase in the store on that day. Get in there and upgrade your gear!
So if you want to join us for a little fun, Head to EMS in Concord, NH on Saturday, October 18th from 6-9pm. The entertainment will be there. When we arrive at EMS we'll have run 67.9 Miles which is past halfway! Once we get there, we invite you all to join us for 3 laps around the Parking Loop (Thats 1 Mile) before we head off into the night and run the last 56.5 miles of our 124 mile Around the Clock Adventure!
Thats not all though... thanks to our friends at Eastern Mountain Sports Portsmouth! On Sunday Morning, October 19th, join us at 10am at the EMS in Portsmouth on Arthur Brady Drive! Club Days will be over but they're rolling out the red carpet for us. EMS Portsmouth is going to set up an aid station for us as we make it to their store front; 114.4 Miles in! They'll have drinks, gels. But most importantly... for those of you interested in joining us for the last 10 miles to Rye.. EMS is gladly going to offer hand held water bottles to the first few who sign up to join us there. They're also raffling off a brand new hydration pack to anyone who is joining us for those last 10 miles. Consider coming out and joining us on our great adventure.. in Concord, in Portsmouth... or anywhere in between. We'd LOVE to have you! You can sign up in store anytime between now and run day. It'll only cost you a $10 donation to the Make-A-Wish Foundation of NH. You can sign up that morning too... no worries!
