ABC Run/Walk #96 is Saturday April 19

by Merlin Anderson (

The next ABC Run (Adventures Benefiting Children Run #96) will be Saturday, April 19 at/for The Baby Fold starting at 8:00 a.m. (doors open at 7:30 a.m. to sign in).

The Baby Fold is located at 108 E. Willow in Normal.

Suggested routes (going N on Const. Trail & back) include: 

3 miles (to near where the trail turns before I55 & back), 6 miles (to end of the trail & back), 9 miles (beyond end of the trail & back).

This could be a great last training run for the Champaign half-marathon or marathon.

Water & Gatorade will be stored at the North end of the trail. 

Back at The Baby Fold will be a wealth of food and drinks, including Meg’s coffee cake, Jenny Keen’s oatmeal, and much more.  Bring something to share if you wish.

As always, ABC runs are free.  Free-will contributions of any amount (cash or checks payable to The Baby Fold) are greatly appreciated.

100% of all donations go to The Baby Fold (because we bring our own food and have no awards, timing services, port-a-johns, or t-shirts to pay for).

ABC#97 (Multi-Sport day) – May 17 at/for Timber Point Outdoor Center (see Facebook posting by Kevin McCarthy)
