Looking for a fun way to slim down for the summer? Consider taking part in the new Birdtown Half Marathon, 8k or 4k races on May 17. The events will take place in Robbinsdale, Golden Valley, Crystal, and Brooklyn Center. And if you are new to exercise, don’t worry. Race organizers say that the events are designed to meet the needs of exercisers of all levels.
Choose Your Distance
If you’ve never taken part in a fun run or running race, there’s no need to be intimidated. Very few people actually “race” the course. Most participants take part in the fitness event as a fun run and as a great way to connect with others and get some healthy exercise.
And you don’t need to be a seasoned runner to get involved. A 4k course is only 2 1/2 miles. If you walk the course at a moderate pace, it should take 40 to 60 minutes to finish. An 8k course is about 5 miles. If you run this course at a slow pace (10-11 minute mile) you’ll finish in about an hour or so.
