Kids are back in school and already on many classroom schedules are the Junior Achievement programs they look forward to. After school, many young boys will eagerly participate in Boy Scout programs, too.
To raise the funding necessary to ensure that JA and Boy Scouts programs remain available to young people in this community, the Parkview Muddy Trail Run will be held on Saturday, Sept. 7. Designed as a muddy obstacle-filled 5K run, this will not be a speed or hard-core challenge event.
Participants can direct their support to Boy Scouts or Junior Achievement. When directing their support, JA supporters can also select their county, and funding will remain in the local community. Companies are encouraged to sponsor an employee team as a fun team-building activity. To raise funds for their entry fee, runners are encouraged to solicit donations from friends, family, and co-workers, too.
It’s all happening at the Anthony Wayne Scout Reservation, also known as Camp Chief Little Turtle, in Pleasant Lake in Steuben County. Beginning at 10 a.m., teams and individuals will get down and dirty with a mud pit, river run, and sand dune climb. Friends and family are invited to bring food, chairs, or blankets to watch the muddy fun and capture the day in pictures and video. Activities will be held rain or shine – rain will simply add more fun!
Entrants who register before Aug. 24 receive a free t-shirt and tote bag. Every participant gets a hearty lunch, too. Entrants must be at least 14 years of age.
Also available are 30-foot Rock Climbing Wall and 150-yard Zip Line experiences. Participants do not need to enter the 5K to register for either or both of these added thrills.
