Saturday, June 25, 7:30 a.m., Hyde Park Square
To celebrate its 15th anniversary, the Hyde Park Blast is adding a new event: The Blast Chariot Chase. All you need is a three-person team and a two-wheel, self-assembled chariot.
“The Blast is excited to spice up the 15th year by adding the Blast Chariot Chase event. Not only will it be a fun, crazy and unique event to participate in and watch, but it will also allow the Blast to contribute even more money to cancer-fighting charities through sponsorship and registration fees,” said Dan Lee, Hyde Park Blast president.
Hyde Park Blast is a full day of events, kicking off at 7:30 a.m. with a 4-mile run/walk, followed by kids races and bike races. The day also includes musicians performing from 4 p.m. to midnight, food vendors and craft beer. Proceeds benefit The Cure Starts Now and the Shemenski Foundation.
Registration opens March 1.
