We will start our informal 5k fun run at 9am with check-in beginning at 8:30am. This event is FREE but we are asking for donations of canned food for The Brick. Our route will start and end at Ignite Fitness and be both on the road and paved trail. Strollers will be able to traverse the course, so bring everyone! There will be a marked turnaround for a 1-mile option, too. Please note that this run follows a “fun run” format, which means that the route will be marked, but roads will not be closed. All runners, walkers and participants will be required to follow all pedestrian traffic laws for safety. Please note that there is not a Chequamegon Bay Area Community Fund Turkey Trot this year in Washburn, but we sure hope it returns in 2019! Until then we are offering this option!
