The 14th Annual Bob Bridgman Memorial 5K Race will be held this year on
Monday, May 26th at 8:30 AM. Due to the popularity of last year's relocation,
this year's race will again take place at Mansfield University's Shaute Baseball
Field. Registration will begin at 7:00 AM.
Those of you familiar with the course during the first 11 years may recall
that the baseball field had previously been the half way point. Like last year,
this year's course will effectively be a reverse of the original, going from the
baseball field to the football field and back again.
A kids "Fun Run" will also be held and will take place while the 5k race is
in progress. No pre-registration necessary, just come prepared for a short run
around the track.
Proceeds to benefit the Second Chance Animal Sanctuaries, M.U. Cross
Country, M.H.S. Cross Country, and the Bob Bridgman Memorial Scholarship at M.U.

Bob Bridgman began a career of long distance running in 1976 and brought to
the sport the integrity that he took everywhere else he went.Â He made many
friends on the local racing circuit, where he competed almost every weekend for
25 years.Â He loved both the sport and the people who participated in it so
much, that he would often tell people that he lived life from one Saturday to
the next.Â This race is held in remembrance of Bob.
