1st Annual Lake Lotawana .01K Run/Walk Benefit
March 2, 2013
Lake Lotawana has always been known for its vigorous lifestyle, noodle floating, athleticism and philanthropy; those worlds collide in the most grueling street crossing race in the world. Athletes from around the zip-code have been training for minutes to test their physical mettle.
Terry Gammill, President of the Lake Lotawana Ski Club stated, “I’ve crossed streets in New York, Los Angeles and Las Vegas, but nothing compares to this street crossing race, I plan to make a good showing, but really, just finishing will be an accomplishment.”
This premier event to benefit the Lake Lotawana Youth Ski Club promises to rival some of the greatest athletic cross-street traverses ever held. Craig Davis - Vice President of the Ski Club stated, “This is not your Grandmother’s street-crossing, this is the realdeal.
Hundreds of thousands have participated in Marathons, Iron-Man Races and Obstacle runs, but few have perambulated Colbern Road…for a cause.”
The “Crossing for a Cause” begins on the north side of Colbern Rd. at T-Bones Deli & Meat Market and ends at the Canoe Club on the south side of Colbern Rd in Downtown Lake Lotawana (Gate 2). Sarah Frasier observed, “I am just grateful that we start on the north side of Colbern….at least we’ll be running downhill…”
