12th Sister Blister 5k and 2K in Stone Harbor 8am July 7th 2008 at 80th Street Rec Field

I touched base with the folks over at the Sister Blister 5k Run and 2 K Walk. The name caught my fancy. The event is held in Stone Harbor . Anyhow Michael Scythes wrote this up and I wanted to share it with you.

This will be the 12th annual Sister Blister 5k run and 2 mile walk. The original idea was to hold a run around the 4th to give residents and visitors another option for activity at that time. Stone Harbor does a great job with their July 4th festivities and my wife, Linda McGovern, thought this would be a natural tie in for people looking for things to do. Since we coach Cross Country and Track & Field at Wildwood Catholic High School we also saw a great opportunity to help the booster club for those programs raise some funds. All the proceeds after expenses and awards goes towards helping to offset some of the costs associated with running those programs at WCHS. The other aspect of what we try to do is to keep the associated costs of putting on the run to a reasonable level. This way we can keep the entry fee lower than many other similar events, allowing a family or group to enter at reasonable cost. Amenities include unique shirts with a shore/Stone Harbor theme, an efficiently run race (start on time, accurate and safe course, quickly tabulated results) and, hopefully, an operation geared towards the bulk of the pack runners. We are blessed with a great amount of community support as well as the fabulous support of the Stone Harbor Public Works, Police and borough council. One of our main goals is to represent their town in the best possible light as a place where you can enjoy yourself by choosing from a wealth of safe, family oriented events while enjoying the best of what the shore has to offer.
