The annual Mayor’s run took place at the Tom Ridge Environmental Center. Bikers did a loop around the Peninsula and the run took about 45 minutes.
The event is beneficial to Erie’s economy and gives a chance for out of towners to see the Peninsula. The event included hotdogs, chips, Tim Horton’s, and other refreshments. Around 50 people showed up.
“It’s very exciting the fact they call this the mayor’s run people are so welcoming people from the Erie region I haven’t met here and also people from out of town,”said Mayor Joe Schember.
The Manufacturer’s Association and many volunteers helped put the event together.
