The Hall of Fame's newest hit is embarking on an extended "run" in Cooperstown, and this year, the popular BASE Race is moving to a new Memorial Day Weekend date, with a new course and lineup, as part of the Hall of Fame Classic Weekend Festivities.
The National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum, along with Cooperstown's Clark Sports Center, will present the sixth annual BASE Race charity runs - a 5K fun run and competitive 10K - events on Saturday, May 26 - starting and ending at Doubleday Field and featuring new courses that wind through scenic Cooperstown and long the warning track of the historic ballpark. The race events benefit the Museum's "Be A Superior Example" program promoting healthy lifestyle choices for individuals for all ages.
Registration for the 2018 BASE Race is $25 and $55 for families. Each registered runner will receive a participation medal (for the first 300 runners to register), goodie bag, a free general admission ticket to the Cooperstown Classic. On race day, registration will be $30 for individuals and $65 for families. Additional details are available by calling the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum at (607) 547-0397.
