Want to have some fun in Walther Park? The park turns 60 this year, and we’re working with the library to host a fun run. (You can fun walk if you want.) This isn’t like an ordinary race though.
If you want to know what working with the library means, here you go!
You’ll have an opportunity to learn a bit about the Walther Family along the route. Not only that, but learning can help you with your finishing time! That’s right. There will be a quiz at the end of the race. Depending on your knowledge and performance on the quiz, you can shave some time off your finishing time. This means your brain can improve your chances of winning a prize.
The top two males and females will receive a bowl (pictured above) made by local artisan Terry Eiler. He does beautiful work and donated these to support the race. Even if you don’t win a bowl, all participants will get a commemorative medal in their race bag and all the fun that goes with a local run about town.
This 5K and 1-mile fun run will be Saturday, July 17, 2021 at 8 AM. Registration is just $20 until July 1, 2021. Registration on or after July 1 is $25. Registration for kids 12 and under is $10 until July 1 and $15 after that.
Thank you for all of your support, and remember that amateurs are not just welcomed; they’re embraced!
