It seems only fitting that our friend Alan Yu’s 40th birthday on June 5, 2019 coincides with Global Running Day and we have three route options to celebrate.
The main route (described in the turn-by-turn narrative below) is a loop starting and ending at Distance Runwear at Main Street and 32nd Avenue. All routes start by heading south to 40th Avenue and then heading northwest along Ontario and 33rd/Midlothian to Yukon Street before heading east on 8th Avenue for a celebratory beer.
The 10k loop follows St George Street from 7th Avenue back to the store. The other two versions of the route split off from the main route on 8th Avenue to zig-zag their way from brewery to brewery on either side of Main Street north of Broadway to end at the Global Running Day celebration at Concord Community Park or one of the many brewery options like Red Truck.
Happy birthday Alan Yu!
