Hall of Fame BASE Race Announced: August 11 5k & 10k Running Races

The National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum and Cooperstown’s Clark Sports Center are teaming up to bring a pair of road races—a family-style 5K fun run and a competitive 10K for racing enthusiasts—to Cooperstown on Saturday, August 11, 2012, to promote healthy and active lifestyles for individuals of all ages.

The inaugural BASE Race provides families, athletes of all skill level, and racing enthusiasts with the opportunity to participate in a challenging 10K through the rolling hills of the greater Cooperstown area, or a fun 5K that runs past the Hall of Fame. Both courses celebrate the pastoral beauty of Cooperstown during its summer peak.

The BASE Race will also include an expo featuring on-site opportunities to learn more about healthy lifestyle choices. A full weekend of public programs, August 11-12, focused on the themes of BASE, will be announced soon, including Hall of Famer participation, panel discussions and additional active programs, geared toward today’s young athletes.

Both the 5K and 10K courses will start and conclude at The Clark Sports Center. Prizes will be awarded for both races, in a number of categories based on age groups, in both male and female categories. All registrants will receive baseball and Cooperstown-themed gifts from the inaugural event. Registration is $25 for adults and $50 for families until July 15. Additional details are available online and by calling the Clark Sports Center at 607-547-2800.
