Under the Lights: Road race through Lawrence today at 9 a.m.

Road race today through Lawrence

Want a great way to support a great Lawrence experience? Run or walk this morning.

The Lawrence History Center is hosting a road race in the North Canal district of Lawrence this morning at 9 a.m. to raise awareness of the History Center in the community, and to promote fitness and economic and cultural development in the City of Lawrence.

The race starts at 9 a.m. at the Everett Mills Complex at 15 Union Street. The events offered are 5K, walk and the Kids Canal Dash (12 and under). The registration fee is $30 for those 13 and older. The “Dash” fee is only $1.

The route highlights many of the revitalization efforts in the city’s parks and historic mill buildings, and will utilize local vendors whenever feasible in all aspects of the event production and promotion.

Today’s race date, May 18, was selected to coincide with Ralph Fasanella Day, honoring the artist whose well-known paintings of The Great Strike honor the role of Lawrence in the labor movement.

Can’t miss Connaughton ad

How about this for an web advertisement heading into Notre Dame baseball’s Friday night game against Clemson University:

“He is the only man to dunk on Jabari Walker and strike out Jameis Winston ... Come see Pat Connaughton pitch this Friday at 7:30 p.m. and help break in the new field turf at Eck Stadium.”

It wasn’t a bad deal: Four tickets, hot dogs and drinks for $20.

The former St. John’s Prep star is also one of the school’s best basketball players, is in the ad wearing a hat, a hoop jersey, baseball pants, glove and standing in a gymnasium with a hoop behind him.

By the way, Connaughton didn’t disappoint. He pitched eight innings, allowing only three hits in a 2-1 win over Clemson.
