The AREC Poker Run is one of the most popular of the AREC Club Runs.  It will take place on Wednesday, July 20 at our weekly club run from Malarkey’s Irish Grill, 248 N. Marina Drive in Long Beach.  The Poker Run has all runners heading out on our regular running routes of 3, 4 or 5 miles.  Along the run they will pass through stations where dealers will give them a playing card.  At the end, they will have a 5 card poker hand.  The runners with the best hands WIN VALUABLE PRIZES!  Open to all runners.  There is no cost to enter.  Donations are accepted for the Heartful Hands/Jonathan Jaques Pediatric Cancer Center holiday gift party.  Hope to see you there!
