The Race For the End Of Marathons marathon will take place Saturday and the race route will not close any roads or cause traffic problems. Hatworth explains their race is on dedicated paths and sidewalks so no roads will have to be closed. "Why not use a perfectly good sidewalk instead of closing roads?" added Hatworth.
The inaugural race already has 2,500 runners participating, with many unaware they are actually running to end marathons because they just wanted to run in yet another marathon, regardless of the cause. "I think half the runners just signed up as an excuse to run in another marathon." replied Hatworth who is organizing special 5,10 and 20K routes for Saturday's race. "Through this race, I hope we can all bring an end to the suffering we all endure listening to these running people blather on about their 'times' and how they've been in training for weeks preparing for the races." says Hatworth.
Anyone interested in participating in the Run For the End Of Marathons marathon is asked to sign up online at www.endtheruns.com or show up at the race starting line Saturday at the corner of Bank and Sunnyside anytime before the race begins at 9am.
