A Lincoln couple, Zach & Heidi Harsin, are contributing to the running boom with a unique running series with all the events taking place locally.
"The Born & Raced in Nebraska Running Series was developed with the runner in mind," said Zach Harsin, co-founder of BRIN. "We strive to complement the many well-established races in the area and provide an excellent experience for each of our runners. Each race is unique in its own right but based on one idea: races for runners, by runners. The vision behind BRIN is a hometown approach to each race with the perks & feel of much larger races. The goal is to produce some of the best organized events in the area each year."
The first event in the 2014 BRIN series is Kicks 'N Kisses - A Valentine’s Themed 5K. Runners have the opportunity to Run with their crush in the Duo Dash or run down a Valentine of their own in the Cupid Chase. There is also a one mile option for kids. The race is Saturday, February 15th at 10 a.m. at the Lancaster Event Center/ Mahoney Park.
"No matter what your relationship status reads on Facebook - single, taken, married, or it's complicated - you need to spend Valentine's with us! All runners are welcome to wear a relationship status tag to either help them find true love this Valentine's Day or display to the world how lucky they are to be taken."
