Bugle Bolt Paige Slape Memorial 5k
*Register by October 5 for tshirt*
Come run this beautiful fast course with lest than 70 feet of elevation change through the entire course. This will be a great time to run and see the fall colors at their peak. This is also the season for hearing the elk bugle throughout Ponca and the Boxley Valley. After the race you could hike the Lost Valley Trail, Hawksbill Craig, The Buffalo River Trail or go see triple falls within just a few minutes drive. Directions to the nearest trails will be in everyone’s grab bags to make this a full family fun day.
Proceeds from the race will be supporting the Paige Slape Memorial Scholarship Fund. The fund, established in 2008, honors the memory of Alyssa Paige Slape. She was extremely active in all functions at Jasper High School, Newton County, Arkansas, an outstanding student deeply loved and respected by students, faculty, and anyone who had been fortunate enough to know her.
Her family and friends felt the best way to honor and remember Paige would be the creation of a fund to help the type of student and individual that she so personified.
Each year, three students from the area will be given a scholarship in whatever amount the fund can afford to provide. This fund is a nonprofit organization and all members volunteer their services with compensation.
