Frankfort notes: Charity runs create Trifecta

Three established charity foot races in Frankfort have joined forces this year and will have their official kickoff at the Jan. 11 showing of the film Hood to Coast at the Grand Theatre. Door prizes will be offered at the kickoff before the movie, which starts at 7:45 p.m. Specials downtown that evening include complimentary brochette and $3.50 wine at Gibby's Restaurant, and 15 percent off at the Irish Sea Celtic Shop.

The races involved and the new dates for 2011 are the Good Shepherd School Run for the Gold 3K Run/Walk on March 17, the Pro.Active Therapy Pro.Active for Life 5K on May 20, and the YMCA's Activate America 5 Mile Run/2 Mile Walk on June 18.

This series has been developed so people can train for running or walking distances that increase over the races: 1.7 miles, 3.1 miles and 5 miles.

Participants who sign up for all three races by March 17 will receive a Frankfort Trifecta Performance T-shirt.
