ABC Run/Walk #160 to benefit Sugar Grove Nature Center will be 9:00 am to noon, Saturday, January 9, at Sugar Grove Nature Center.
We will be outside. Please follow the usual covid-19 safety protocols (arrive at different times & wear masks when near others).
I and a Sugar Grove representative will be there from 9:00 to noon to greet and facilitate signing in.
This event is free, with the opportunity for a free-will donation to Sugar Grove Nature Center.
Course options include a 7 mile road course or a 5 mile trail course (or any distance you like). For the ultra-minded, see how many miles you can run before noon (feel free to start early) and record your miles on the sign-in sheet before you leave The results should be interesting.
p.s. Thanks so much to all the contributors to ABC#159, for Adopt-A-Family. The $3,120 donated is so awesome, about double last year and four times that of the year before. This means more families in need will have a great Christmas!
