Amidst all the controversy surrounding the use of performance enhancing drugs in major league baseball right now, the National Baseball Hall of Fame would like to send out a very strong message about making healthy lifestyle choices during the BASE Race 5K and 10K charity run in Cooperstown, NY this Sunday.  The goal of this event is to support the Hall of Fame's "Be A Superior Example" program (BASE), which is an educational initiative promoting healthy lifestyle choices and in turn, warning of the dangers of performance enhancing drugs.

Of course this serious message is set off in a fun way for families and will include a 5K and 10K race kicking off at 8am on Sunday, August 11th at the Clark Sports Center in Cooperstown.  Pre-registration entry (through Saturday) is $25 for adults and $50 for families.  Race day registration will cost adults $40 and $65 for families.  You can register on-line at  Prizes will be awarded throughout the event and to race winners in different categories.
