2009 Superhero 5k Race in Asheville
Update: results are in …
The 3rd running of the Superhero 5k is coming up fast. At 4:30 PM on Saturday, November 7, 2009 hundreds of Super Heroes (some in their super form and some in their clandestine alter ego form) will run 5,000 meters through bits of downtown Asheville, scooting across the footbridge that spans I240, with many more bits of Montford, past the Chamber of Commerce back to the footbridge and the finish. This event is presented by the Asheville Brewing Company and will start and finish at 77 Coxe Avenue, Asheville, North Carolina, 28801.
I didn’t do this in 2008. But I did it in 2007. I had a blast. Here is my character in 2007. I think it needs a little update, but I will still be … Souperman!
Every Superhero needs a story. Here is the Souperman story (which was, and will be attached to his cape) …
By day, he’s a mild-mannered sous chef for an eclectic, cosmopolitan bistro. By night – when the sun goes down and the wind blows cold, he becomes Souperman – warming the hearts, souls and bellies of the masses.
His weapons are varied and they include the likes of Five Onion, Chicken with Wild Rice, Potato Corn Chowder and White Bean and Chicken Chili.
Now, running in a cape is … well like running with a parachute. It’s not going to enhance your time. But, it’s a 4:30 PM race so if you like a beer or a bit of wine you can have that at the Asheville Brewing Company where an enormous party emerges at the end of the race.
