Meb Keflezghi in San Jose – Half Marathon 3.10.10

Eritrean events: Support Meb Kiflezghi @ Half Marathon Race: San Jose, CA – Let’s support our Eritrean American hero, Meb Kiflezghi, in the upcoming Half Marathon race, to be held this Sunday, October 3, 2010, in San Jose, CA. Let’s all join him in this event by being part of the event, cheerleading and waving our hard earned flag saying, “Yes we can !”, as it is part and parcel of our identity, Eritrean. It is our hard earned destiny to express where we come from and what we can do as Eritrean Americans.
Here is more information from HalfMarathon.Net.
“The race begins in downtown San Jose at the corner of West Santa Clara Street and Almaden Avenue, with a 7:55 AM starting time for wheelchair competitors and an 8:00 AM start for runners and walkers. From the starting line, the race course takes participants first through the downtown area, along 11th, 4th and 2nd Streets, and then along The Alameda along the stretch that takes runners westward, into neighborhoods that include sights like San Jose’s Municipal Rose Garden and other urban parks, and past stretches of the campus of San Jose State University and the Santa Clara Catholic Cemetery.
Throughout the course, as past participants of other “Rock and Roll”-themed road races around the country (in places like San Diego, Virginia Beach and other cities) know, there will be live bands playing for runners, as well as cheerleading stations where spectators can cheer on their friends and family running in the race. The course will close after four hours, so race organizers note that prospective runners should be able to complete the course within this time limit. The finish line for the race lies just a few blocks from the starting line, at Plaza de Cesar Chavez Park…”
After all the in-person moral support, throughout the race, let’s all come together, from all corners of cheerleading centers, to greet Meb in the Cesar Chavez Park (in front of Fairmont Hotel), after the race is over. It is the Eritrean way !
Eternal Glory to our Martyrs!
