On Saturday at 8 a.m. runners and walkers crowded the streets surrounding Two Strike Park. While runners enjoyed a day of friendly competition, they also earned donations for our local schools and youth organizations! A portion of the entry fee goes directly to our youth!
We had some technical difficulties with the check-in. My apologies to the runners who had to wait in lines longer than necessary. Thank you to all the volunteers who woke up at dawn to help with this event. Without volunteers and community support, we could not have such a fun annual event!
Congratulations to the runners that competed at the top of their age group and won a medal!
