ABC Run #125 to benefit Sugar Grove Nature Center will be 9:00 am, Sunday, January 15, at Sugar Grove Nature Center (doors open at 8:30).
This event is free, with an opportunity for a free-will donation to Sugar Grove Nature Center to support their children’s environmental education programs.
Donations of any amount are welcome. If you contribute $25 or more and sign a membership form, you will receive a membership to Sugar Grove Nature Center.
Come out to enjoy a winter wonderland by running, walking, cross-country skiing, or snowshoeing.
Angela Funk, the director of the nature center, will make sure we have a variety of beverages and treats to enjoy.
Meg will bring her signature coffee cake. Bring something to share if you wish.
The main running course is a 7-mile loop course on roads. You can make this a shorter course by turning around at any point.
I hope to lead some adventurers on a trail run (conditions permitting).
Hope to see you there!
