The 2016 Lucy Town Half Marathon & 5K is being organized by the Lucy Desi Museum & Center for Comedy. Since the inaugural event in 2013 over 1,200 participants ran through Lucy Town (Jamestown, NY) including runners from 34 different states and two countries. California, Arizona, Colorado, Florida, Montana, Oregon, and Nevada were just a few of the states represented by runners during the weekend.
The goal of the weekend is to promote a healthy lifestyle that includes both exercise and laughter.
The USATF certified courses begin and end in Lucille Ball’s hometown of Jamestown, NY. Additionally, the half marathon course runs through the neighboring towns of Lakewood and Celoron, and near locations such as Ball’s childhood home, the Lucy Desi Museum & Center for Comedy, a full-color ‘I Love Lucy’ mural in downtown Jamestown, and the Lucille Ball Memorial Park.
