Who wants to run a 5K in November? This weekend would have been perfect weather. What was the unforeseeable scheduling conflict? The rumor around town is that they did not have a permit for the run on October 14th and had to move the date of the run. I know several people registered for the October 14th run and they are annoyed the date has changed as they can now longer run.
