The race director is on the ball for the 2012 Lodi Mother’s Day Run. Online registration is open, posters are getting put up and the brochures are on the way!
The Lodi Mother’s Day Run (LMDR) committee is lookng forward to another great event with a new day. This years race will be on Saturday, May 12, 2012.
New for 2012: We have added a 10k run and later start times for the 5 & the new 10k. Also, the kids events ( one mile and 1/2 mile race) will be FREE and include youth T’s and finisher medals.
We held a logo contest this year, open to the public to get a new logo. We feel the selected logo, designed by Jim Salzman of Dane, WI, accurately reflects the nature of the run. Rural in nature, hilly, farmland, and fun.
See you on May 12, 2012.

In 2010 they spend more than $30,000 on databases, books, movies, audiobooks, music and more. Lodi area patrons enjoy these resources thanks to the funds raised through this event. Continue reading
