Not All Athletes Wear Jerseys – Local Firemen Run Pea Soup 5k
The 6th annual Pea Soup 5k, 10k, and 1/2 mile kids run is just around the corner! June 4th, 2015, will be here before we know it. Last year, members of the Somerset and St. Joe’s Fire Departments ran the 5k in their fire gear. Fully equipped, they ran with their turnout jacket and pants, helmet, and airpack. Kuddos to those who ran it as running a 5k in full gear is definitely a lot of work!! We set out to recruit more fire departments to participate in this year’s event, and have added new award categories for the run to provide some friendly competition with our local departments.
Clayton and Deer Park Fire Departments, both whom have members participating in this year’s run, let me spend some time with each of them to experience some of what they do first hand. I definitely had fun hanging out with them! Check out the video we’ve created! Share it and invite your fire department friends to take the challenge and join us for the Pea Soup 5k! And, please come out to support all those running!
