Running with the Big Dog

Wedeman 5 mile run/walk on Sunday, April 10

Son, Joe, will be on hand Sunday

The Big Island Road Runners will be hosting the Emily WedemanMemorial 5-miler to be held in Hilo on Sunday, April 10th at 7:30am starting at Coconut Island parking area. 

This fun run/walk is free to members and non-members.  The BIRR will be accepting donations to the American Cancer Society in honor of Emily Wedeman.  Participants are asked to arrive early at the parking lot for Coconut Island (Moku Ola) to sign up and receive final instructions. 

Wedeman was a super volunteer for the club for several years and a great supporter of her triathlete son, Joe.  She died of lung cancer three years ago and the BIRR club honors her with this Memorial 5 mile run/walk.

This year the course winds through Lili’uokalani Park, Banyan Drive and Kalanianaole Ave towards Keaukaha.  Post run refreshments will be provided.  For more information, contact BIRR president, Alan Ryan at 962-6044 or go to their web site at www.bigislandroadrunners.org.
