Hennepin-Lake Classic coupon code
Have you registered for this summer's Hennepin-Lake Classic yet? 2010 marks the 33rd running of this Minneapolis late summer tradition. This year's event is Sunday, August 1.
This is one of my favorite races all year. (And, no, my favorites are not only events put on by The Sporting Life.) I love races with tradition and history in the Twin Cities and, because this race has been contested every year since 1978, it definitely qualifies as historical.
I love the fact that you can choose between a 10K (two laps around Lake Calhoun) or 5K (one lap), of if you're really ambitious, register for the double-header and run both races.
Over the years, I've run all the races at HLC, including the double header (which is even more fun than it might sound.) It really is a can't miss event. Or, at the very least, a "shouldn't miss" event.
Lake Calhoun, in the heart of Minneapolis, is a great location for running and walking events. There's always a fun, festive atmosphere at this race, even years where it's been so hot and sticky you'd think you'd been magically transported to the tropics overnight.
With race day just over one week away, on the off-chance you haven't registered yet, it's not too late. I'm even offering you use of my super-secret coupon code!
You can register here for the Hennepin-Lake Classic brought to you by The Sporting Life. If you use the super-secret coupon code: TJcodeHLC, you'll get $3 off your registration fees.
