The first Black Jack 5k was a casualty of the mid-December blizzard that we’re still trying to melt away. I am thrilled that it’s time for the 2nd Black Jack 5k on Saturday, January 16th at 8 AM at Fletcher Park (registration starts at 7:30). I’m ready to get back out there with some fellow runners for a fun race. It’s just $5 to participate in the Black Jack 5k and it has a fun theme. You get a playing card at the start and another at the aid station. You have the option to take a “hit” at the finish line and whoever gets black jack (or closest to 21) wins the pot. Weather should be good. A little cloudy and temperatures in the low to mid-30s. I look forward to it.
Two more Black Jack 5k races are planned after this. January 30th at Jackson Park in Hendersonville and February 6th back at Fletcher Park. Both start at 8 AM with registration starting at 7:30.
