Retro-Run
May 30 @ 4:00 pm

Break out your best old – or not so old running wear and save May 30th for a bit of exercise and a bunch of fun. The Lori Groetken Foundation and the American Hungarian Club of Bloomington are sponsoring a non-competitive just-for-fun Retro-Run at the Hungarian Club, 1520 Calhoun St in Bloomington.

This is a free event, in memory of Lori Groetken, though any and all donations are appreciated, and all the proceeds received go to pancreatic cancer research.

The Retro-Run takes runners – or walkers, because everyone is welcome – north from the Hungarian Club to Seminary Ave., turning west to Cottage Ave. for a short offset to White Oak Park, for a lap or two around the Lake before returning to the Hungarian Club. To the Park and back is about a mile. Add one lap around the lake makes it two miles, or go for another lap to add another mile. Need more? Just do it. But pace yourself for food and fun, because……..

At your arrival back at the Hungarian Club, you will be greeted with your first refreshment beverage at the finish area. At the Clubhouse you’ll find FREE Food, courtesy of Schooners, including hot dogs and brats. Plus other beverages will be available. Need more? Great looking and very limited edition tie-dyed souvenir t-shirts will be for sale at a very nominal fee.

The Retro-Run starts at 4pm and continues until food runs out or folks go home. Grab a friend, grab the family and go do this. Questions? Call Bill Read (663-0355) or Bob at Schooners (829-6841).
