Join us Sat. Sept. 26, 2020 for the 5th annual Run for the Trails. Proceeds from this event go to the Run for the Trails fund which will be used to create & maintain a recreational trail system throughout the Oconto Falls area. Events include a timed 1/2 Marathon run, 10K run/walk and 5K run/walk through beautiful Oconto Falls. The course will be well marked with new course markers and cones, well supported and most of all fun! There’s even a post-race party at Salscheider’s Antique Bar!
