Boogie’s Buddy 5 kicks off the Fourth

The umpteenth annual Boogie’s Diner Buddy 5 race returns to Aspen, as usual, on the Fourth of July.

The event includes a five-mile running race and a one-mile family/canine walk, all starting and finishing at Boogie’s Diner in Aspen. The running events start at 8 a.m. with the fastest group of runners, followed by an 8:20 a.m. start for the rest of the pack. The canine/family walk starts at 9:30 a.m.

The Buddy 5 event benefits The Buddy Program, a nonprofit organization that matches youths with mentors throughout the valley.

Registration costs $25, or $15 for youths 16 and under. Participants should register at Boogie’s Diner (for an additional $10 on race day beginning at 7 a.m.). All participants will receive T-shirts (and “baby T’s” are available for women this year for an extra $5). For additional information, call 920-2130.
