The Crofton Runners Club kicked off its 10th season Saturday at Crofton Park.

Club activities are centered on family participation, says Bill Burlison, club president.

There are no trophies or ribbons and no entry fees. Refreshments at the conclusion of each race are complimentary. Two races are held each month -- two miles and five miles -- that start at the same time and place and finish at Crofton Park.

You can join in the running part -- like my husband Dave -- or be like me and just cheer on the racers. And if you missed the April race, don't worry. The next race on May 14.
