Established in 1987, Gene's Run has become a local favorite. This 4-mile event, staged in the vicinity of that most venerable of local landmarks, Gene's Place, is the 2nd of only 2 evening races on the circuit and the only entry that is not of a standard 5 or 10K distance. The summer weather and rolling course pose a challenge that is well rewarded with free suds, soft drinks and fruit, courtesy of Gene's.
