What was that New Year’s resolution? Start Training!
Our 23rd Jade Run 5K will be held March 2nd. It’s a great little race to start your running season, and a fun run for beginners. Awards will be given to Top Overall Male and Female runners and medals to all runners. Refreshments, as always, following the race.
This year our 1 Mile Fun Walk will encourage walkers, both children and adults (and pets?), to dress as their favorite Seuss character and help celebrate Dr. Seuss’ birthday. Medals will be given for the best entries.
