    Now in its 17th year of running, the Hyde Park Blast is a favorite of many for the 4-mile course through the neighborhood of Hyde Park. In years past, they gave out high quality Brooks technical running shirts, but for the past 2 years, they have given out the cotton fleecy shirts, which is a disappointment. The course is nice and fairly flat, but you have to be on the lookout for people running with strollers at every step. The Stroller Brigade weaves in and out of narrow but crowded streets, which I found to be a huge pain. I’ve never seen so many strollers in a race! The Kids Fun run is a great opportunity for the young ones to participate. Last year, they gave out medals to just the kids, but this year they only gave out a cookie and milk. Disappointing to my 6-year old daughter who was really looking forward to getting a medal!
