The summer running season got underway Monday night with the second annual Mjolnir Mile on Union Street in West Peterborough.

Reuben Lyons won the Valhalla Running Club event with a 5:04.82 mile run from the Route 101 side of Union Street to Teixeira Park.

The Monday Night Grinda series is planned to start on Monday, June 15 and run each Monday at 6 p.m. at the Mascenic parking lot through Aug. 10. The just-under-four-mile course include a 1.3-mile uphill grind on which the Mascenic cross-country team trains.

Runners are also sought for the Virtual Viking 5K. Run the Viking 5K course (either virtually or in person) beginning on Sunday of this week and completing the run by Friday evening and submit your time to Mike Smith at msmith@mascenic.org. Smith will track each runner through the length of the series with the winners (male and female in categories sub-high school, high school to 30 and over 30) winning sweet Viking run series gear.

The course is the Viking 5K course used during homecoming and used last year for the Viking run series that took place last summer.
