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.

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. He made many friends on the local racing circuit, where he competed almost every weekend for 25 years. 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. This race is held in remembrance of Bob.
