The DiMino Lower Niagara Running Series is gearing up for another great running season with a generous $10,000 donation from Anthony DiMino, owner of Tops in Lewiston, and the addition of three new races. The series has changed from a 5K series to a "running" series, and now offers a variety of races that highlight the beauty and history of the region while offering runners the opportunity to run different distances and terrains.
The series will continue to include the Nancy Price Memorial 5K, the Jason Raby Memorial 5K, the Peach Festival 5K and the Hospice Dash 5K. New this year will be the Mount St. Mary's 5K River Run, Tuscarora 10K and 2.5 Mile Run, and the Bond Lake Athletic Club RUT Race.
Each race brings its own unique features, and each offers an opportunity for families to come out and support their community in a fun, healthy way.
The series has something for everyone - even competitive runners. Runners who run four out of seven races will be eligible for cash prizes and series awards. Athletes who run all seven races will be presented with a special gift regardless of their race times.
