Overland Park, KS (PRWEB) June 29, 2012
United Multisport, a locally-owned and operated race production company, is proud to announce the Blues N’ Brews 10-Miler, 5K, and 10-Mile Relay races to be held in Kansas City on September 30th, 2012.
“The Blues N’ Brews run is going to be an epic running event,” said Brian Weaver, CEO of United Multisport. “The course we’ve designed is not technically difficult, yet it’s very fast and scenic. It’s a downhill run through some of the most notable districts in Kansas City, past a number of great landmarks. We’re expecting a larger-than-average gathering of running enthusiasts of all ages and skill levels. But what we’re most excited about is the fact that we’re creating a unique Downtown Kansas City racing and live music event with food, a beer garden, and live music bands every mile along the course. The excitement is definitely building for the September event. This is gearing up to be one of the biggest running parties in Kansas City.”
The Blues N’ Brews run includes a USATF-certified 10-Mile race, a 5K run, and Brews Brother Relay. The scenic downtown Kansas City race course takes runners through the Power and Light District, past the Sprint Center, through the 18th and Vine Jazz District, through the Hyde Park Neighborhood, past Crown Center, and ends at Grinders in the Crossroads Arts District.
The race and related events begin on September 30th, 2012 at Crossroads KC @ Grinders (417 E 18th St Kansas City, MO 64108). Spectators are encouraged to gather at the Crossroads area where they will have access to the beer garden and the best view of the runners as they compete. A pre-race performance by Willie Arthur Smith’s world-famous Marching Cobras will kick-off the day.
The 10-Mile run and relay both begin at 7:00 a.m. The 5K begins at 7:15a.m. Live music from local Kansas City bands will be performed at stops along the race course. At the finish line, Grammy award-winning Blues Traveler will perform a FREE show for all attendees. The members of Blues Traveler will also be judging costume contest during the awards ceremony following the races.
