Thurs Night Fun Run + Mark Plaatjes Q&A
August 8, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Did you know that 26 years ago this month, In Motion Running founder Mark Plaatjes won the marathon at the 1993 IAAF World Championships in Stuttgart, Germany? Plaatjes, who had just recently become a U.S. citizen, outran Namibia’s Luketz Swartbooi in the final mile of the race to win with a 14-second margin in 2:13:57.
We’ll celebrate the anniversary of his victory with a candid Q&A with Mark after our free Thursday night fun run from the store on Aug. 8. Our weekly community-oriented fun starts at 6 p.m. and 5K and 10K options for all levels of runners. We’ll enjoy pizza from Savory Cuisines Catering and cold beverages after the run, then engage in a candid conversation with Plaatjes, one of the luminaries of the Boulder running community for the past three decades.
