40th Annual Crowley Brothers 10K Road Race and Half Marathon
June 7, 2013 at 12:00 am – June 9, 2013 at 12:00 am
Running legends Kathrine Switzer and Bill Rodgers join forces as the celebrity speakers at this classic event. But there will be a special buzz for Switzer as she will be reliving a little history here—the race director, Mike Lannon, was with Kathrine in her first ever official race where she ran with men, in 1966! This was a year before the famous Boston Marathon incident which started the women’s running movement. She’ll talk about this at the expo on Saturday at (10 – 4 PM) to be held at the Rutland Middle School Keefe Gym on Library Ave, where she and Bill will also be signing their books. On Sunday, they will either run or greet you at the start and finish. In addition to the 10K and Half, there is a 10K relay, 5K race, 5K walk and Kids Run. Kathrine’s Friday speaking schedule:12:30 at Rutland HS – speaking on the decision to make a difference in people’s lives
9am – TV Show hosted by race director Mike Lannon on PEG TV
5pm – Ruland Regional Medical Center – speaking on leadership and the workplace
