This year the race will be highlighting world wide access to water. We are fortunate in North America to have an unlimited supply to access of and amounts of drinkable water. In other areas, this is not the case. The pitcher highlighted in the logo area will serve as a reminder that we can help others in gaining access to drinkable water. This year the 5K event will not use plastic bottles of water. The organizers are asking that each participant bring their own water bottle and the participants can fill it before the race. After marking their bottle, the participants will be able to use their bottle at the end of the race. Together, we can decrease the use of plastics in our small part of the world. (In case one has forgotten their water bottle on the counter at home, there will be water bottles available for a small donation at the registration table area.)
ALL PROCEEDS are given to the Mennonite Central Committee to demonstrate God’s love by working among people to gain access to drinkable water. This course will be held on the route from last year. The course is not certified. The course has varying running surfaces: blacktop, a ground track surface and a grass parking lot.
