Featured Video: The Brooksie Way Half Marathon

It’s your last call to join 4,500 or so of your closest friends for the fourth running of the Brooksie Way Half Marathon and 5k. There’s still time to sign up for the Oct. 2 race at TheBrooksieWay.com.  The scenic course begins at Oakland University and winds through Rochester and Rochester Hills and uses parts of the Clinton River and Paint Creek trails before finishing at the university.  Nifty commemorative medals await everyone who completes the 13.1 mile course. The free Brooksie Way Fitness Expo runs Friday and Saturday before the race at the OU Recreation Center, giving you access to the latest in running gear and health and nutrition information. And 10 bucks will get you all the pasta you can eat on Saturday if you’re looking to load up on carbs before the big race, which named in memory of Brooks Stuart Patterson, the late son of Oakland County Executive L. Brooks Patterson. Proceeds from the race help fund the Brooksie Way Minigrant program.
