The first ever "Streak Thru Aberdeen" has been rescheduled, officials with the Cal Ripken Sr. Foundation announced Wednesday.
Originally, the inaugural 7K run was scheduled for Sept. 6, which marks the 18-year anniversary of Cal Ripken Jr. breaking Lou Gehrig’s consecutive-games-played streak.
However, since the Aberdeen IronBirds are scheduled to host a home playoff game Friday, the race has been pushed back a week.
Now, the 7K "Streak Thru Aberdeen" will take place on its new date: Friday, Sept. 13. It is set to begin at 6 p.m. across the street from Ripken Stadium.
The race is a 7K to represent the number that Cal Ripken Sr. wore when he played with the Baltimore Orioles. The 4.3-mile course is a "unique distance challenge for runners looking for a race more than a 5K but not quite ready for a 10K," according to a prepared statement.
