Boston Red Sox, World Series 2018 champions — with a first-year manager: (From MLB.com) The baseball season ends just as the discussion about this Boston Red Sox club’s place in the sport’s long and layered history begins. It’s not enough to simply state that the Red Sox put the finishing touches on their ninth title — and fourth since 2004 — with a clear and convincing 5-1 victory over the Dodgers in Game 5 of the World Series on Sunday night at Dodger Stadium. No, a team this talented, a march this methodical deserves a deeper appreciation. The Red Sox began 2018 by blowing an eighth-inning Opening Day lead and sending their fans into a Twitter tizzy. Then the club with a rookie skipper named Alex Cora won 119 times in all — a mark bested only by the 1998 Yankees (125) and the 2001 Mariners (120). The Red Sox needed just one game north of the minimum each to take down the 100-win Yankees in the American League Division Series, the defending World Series champion Astros in the AL Championship Series and the two-time National League champion Dodgers in the Fall Classic.

Along with the 5K race, which starts at 9 a.m., the event will have a pre-race costume contest and a two-mile health wobble. The wobble is a two-mile, non-timed walk. “Harbin Clinic is excited to become a part of this Cartersville tradition and be able to help put a focus on health and wellness in Bartow County while also supporting the many great things the Bartow County United Way does in the community,” Harbin Clinic CEO Kenna Stock says. Wire2Wire Running will provide timing and results. Registration for the 5K is $25 and $20 for the health wobble, and people can sign up at Active.com. To guarantee T-shirt size, participants need to be registered by Sunday, Nov. 11. Race-day registration for the 5K is $35 and $25 for the wobble. Packet pick up will be on Friday, Nov. 16, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the lobby of the United Way, 320 W. Cherokee Ave. Register for the Race
