Run 4 the Goo is a fun 5K run and walk hosted during the Arenzville, IL Burgoo, which is celebrating its 180th year of stirring that burgoo. The course takes you out into the country and back into the town of Arenzville, where you finish in front of the stage. We encourage you to spend the whole day since this year’s FREE Saturday night entertainment is Shenandoah! At the end of the run, you will receive a FREE cup of burgoo. And if you never had burgoo before, only in Arenzville, IL will you get the World’s Best Burgoo!
The money raised from this event will stay in the area with a large portion being donated to the Prairieland United Way that serves Cass, Northern Greene, Scott, and Morgan counties. To learn more about this amazing group, please visit http://www.prairielandunitedway.org/. The other portion stays in Arenzville supporting many of the local services such as last year’s recipients Green Pastures Performing Arts Camp, Arenzville Community Club, and the Arenzville Volunteer Fire Department.
Lastly, if you run with a group or would like to have the entire family join in the fun, contact us via email ([email protected]), and we will give you a special discount for groups of 4 or more! You just can’t beat that, it’s just too GOO’d of a deal!
