Sophie's Run is a 5K road race, and features a serene setting with rolling hills and a beautiful finish on the dam with US flags soaring overhead and a refreshing water view. It features an awesome community that cheers you on at every turn and a wonderful group of volunteer citizens who help make this race an organized and fun event.
It is a great family event featuring children's entertainer Dino O'Dell along with children's activities, a kid's dash, and team competition.
Packet pickup is available from 4 PM to 7 PM on May 8th at the Running Well store.
From Dino's site:
As a musician Dino has worked professionally in rap, polka, ska, and disco bands. His music groups have opened for the legendary Alvin and the Chipmunks, the pop band the Archies, and many others. As a model, he has graced the runways of Paris, Milan and New York, and Dino has appeared, incognito, on the covers of many sugar cereal boxes. Dino's work as a spy for the government has allowed him access to top secret files, the details of which can be found embedded cryptologically in the lyrics to his songs.
Yes, O'Dell has saved cats caught in trees, trained expectant parents as disciplinarians, and battled forest fires in the Rockies. He speaks eight languages. He runs "the 40" in 4.4 seconds and can hear a pin drop at a Monster Truck Rally. O'Dell loves vegetarian burritos. He enjoys racquetball and he was, for two years, the leading scorer for English Premier League's Arsenal, playing under a false name. Dino O'Dell currently divides his time between his monastic retreat in North East India and promoting his new children's CD, "Itty Bitty Monsters."
