With Tax Day quickly approaching, here's a great way to run off some stress before sending in your return. Or to celebrate getting money back from Uncle Sam. The Riverbend Striders bring you the 2012 Tax Trot road races, Saturday, April 14th at Flushing High School. All 3 races begin at 10 am.

 

You can do the "1040-EZ 5k run/walk," or the "Long Form 10k run" or the "Extension 15k run". The course is flat and fast and goes through nearby neighborhoods. 10k and 15k runners will do 2 and 3 loops, respectively.

Registration is available at Bauman's Running and Walking shop on Hill Road and at www.riverbendstriders.com

Early registration (by April 7) is $18 with a long-sleeve shirt or $8 with no shirt. After April 7 it's $20 with shirt and $10 without.

Time to lace up your running/walking shoes and see if you can outrun the tax deadline!
