This is a great event for all ages and all types of runners and walkers. For the competitive runner, it is a chip timed race with prizes. For the casual runner or walker, it’s all about joining the cause and having a good time. If you don’t want to run or walk the full 5k, there is a shortcut you can take. The more participants, the more money we raise to help find a cure for ALS.
All walkers and runners will get a T-shirt, post race fruit and water, a free drink ticket you can use at the Stag-R-Inn, and a post-race meal which includes pulled pork or sloppy joe, chips, cookies and ice tea or lemonade. Spectators and non-participants may also enjoy the meal with a free will donation. Following the race, you can continue to hang out at the Stag-R and enjoy drinks, food, bags tournament, DJ, and more!
The course is all asphalt. The race starts at the Stag-R, winds its way out into the countryside, comes back through town, and finishes back on main street in front of the Stag-R-Inn. Awards will be given to the top male and female runners in several categories for each. Even if you can’t walk or run in the race, you can still participate or donate.
