Juniata Valley Trail Run – Mifflin, PA
September 12 @ 9:00 am
We are excited to present the first annual 5k Juniata Valley Trail Run! Sign-in and packet pick-up starts at 8 AM and the race begins at 9. Timing is provided by Falcon Race Timing Enjoy the beautiful scenery as you run at the foot of Shade Mountain. The trail is mostly wooded, with a mix of gravel drive, woods trail, and field trail with approximately 700 feet of elevation. This is a rewarding, moderately challenging trail run through the woods, with some long, steady climbs and descents. There will also be a 1-mile walk through the first part of the trail and a kids Fun Run for participants who want a lighter fare. Fuel stations with water and Gatorade will be stationed approximately every mile. Awards will be given in the following categories: Male and female 0 – 9, 10 – 12, 13 – 15, 16 – 25, 26 – 35, 36 – 45, 46 – 55, 56 – 65. There will be hot dogs, chips, snacks and drinks provided at no cost for the runners, their families and spectators. Everyone is welcome!
Proceeds from race fees will go to benefit local adoptive and foster families through Juniata Foster/Adopt Support group.
This organization provides vital support to foster families and families post-adoption, including monthly meetings with the goal of helping to build relationships, form a community of mentoring, providing parenting education and offering socialization and recreational activities for families and their children. Juniata Foster/Adopt Group’s vision is to continue to develop new ways to serve the Foster/Adoption community and provide hands on support for our local foster and adoptive children and families.
September provides some of the best weather of the year, so come join us for a fun morning of exercise and fellowship!
