There’s still time to register for the second annual Barrington Honor Ride and Run, taking place on Sept. 22.
The event was created last year after the retirement of the Freedom Run in 2010. Barrington native Mike Tobin came up with the idea to do a bicycle rally in honor of our country’s wounded warriors. The running events were also added, and the Barrington Honor Ride and Run was created.
The Honor Ride and Run consists of a 29.5 mile bike ride, 10 kilometer and 5 kilometer run. Starting at the Veterans Memorial at Cook and Main Street at 7 a.m., the opening ceremony will include the presentation of the colors by the Marine Corps Color Guard. The Rolling Thunder motorcycle group will lead the riders and runners to start the races.
After the events, there will be a celebration tent at complete with live music, food and fun. The event is free, but donations are graciously accepted.
Proceeds from the event benefit Ride 2 Recovery, an organization helping the mental and physical rehabilitation of wounded veterans.
