073013 Run Your Buns Off Race in Bristol August 30 (202)

BRISTOL — On Saturday, August 31 at 9 a.m. runners and walkers will leave from Basic Ingredients Bakery located on Rt. 3A in Bristol to "run their buns off" for a 4.2 mile jaunt.

Basic Ingredients Bakery and Gift Shop and NH Adventure Boot Camp for Women invite people to join the event. This year's race beneficiary will again be the Jacob Earl Messersmith (JEM) Memorial Scholarship Fund.

The JEM Scholarship helps support one Newfound High School graduate wishing to pursue a higher education in the arts with a $1,000 scholarship. The 2012 scholarship recipient was Abbey Symonds and the 2013 recipient was Gabrielle Tetreault.

Run Your Buns Off was originally designed to promote fitness, food and fun all in one venue. All who cross the finish line will be awarded one of NH's best sticky buns. One sticky bun averages 420 calories, and running 4.2 miles will average a 420 calorie burn.

The top 3 male and female runners as well as the fastest team will be awarded prizes and everyone has a chance to win at the ever growing raffle filled with goodies donated by local businesses.
