Best Bets for Mom 

Mother’s Day is Sunday. We know, we know… you didn’t forget. This is just a friendly reminder. And what kind of friends would we be if we didn’t also remind you of some great gift ideas to celebrate the mom in your life who runs— and probably just plain runs things, too. Here are our best bets for mom, with plenty of time to spare! 

Register for the King Tiger 5K 

The King Tiger 5K is one of THE most family-friendly running events in town. This race also has 4-person teams in addition to the traditional individual race result, so anyone can participate with ease. It also has one of the biggest kids fun runs of the year in the 1K Tiger Trot. And if that’s not enough, there’s RITA’s Italian Ice for every finisher, too. Proceeds benefit the Miracle League, helping fund baseball for kids with disabilities. And if you’re looking for a great value, you’ve found it.
