It’s been a tough winter, we are all sick of it, and even sick of talking about it. So lets talk about spring and summer races. Don’t let the word races scare you off. These races are designed to get people of all fitness levels moving and having fun. Total Health Systems is proud to be sponsoring many races that will be taking place in Macomb County from March thru June. In the past Total Health Systems has sponsored a team in the Let’s Move Festival of Races. This year we will be sponsoring that race as well as 5 others in Macomb County. It’s time to start thinking about what you want to do.
The first race coming up is the Lucky Leprechaun on March 8. It is dog and stroller friendly !! There is an event for everyone. 5k Run, 5k walk, 1 mile run and 1 mile walk. There is even a leprechaun costume contest. (see it’s fun, people dress up and bring their dogs, no need to feel intimidated, you can do this) http://www.luckyleprechaunrace.com
Saturday April 19 is the 5k Rabbit Run and it will start right across the street from our Washington office then you will race, run, on the Macomb Orchard Trail.
Next is the the Let’s Move Festival of races. For this one we will be sponsoring a THS team. We will provide you a training program for your event, a pre race seminar the week of the race, group training runs, a tee shirt to wear on race day, and after you complete the race you get a massage gift certificate.
