Mental Health America of Putnam County and the DePauw University cross country team are hosting the Mind Your Health 4-mile run and 2-mile walk. The event will take place on July 30 at 8 a.m. at the DePauw University Nature Park. All proceeds will go to support the Mental Health America Programs provided for the Putnam County Community.
The pre-registration fee before July 21 is $16 for both 4-mile and 2-mile races and includes a sports bag. Registration after July 21 is $20 for both races, and the sports bag is not guaranteed. Both races are free to those ages 10 and under. Sports bags are $5 each.
First place for both men and women in both events will be a $50 gift certificate, second place will be a $30 gift certificate and third place a $25 gift certificate to The Blue Mile in Broad Ripple. There will be age group awards in both events. Age group awards and a large drawing will include health related gift certificates for local flowers, massages and hair cuts. Substitutions may be based on locale and sex of participants.
Both the 4-mile run and 2-mile walk are on packed stone trails in a wooded area. One route will be along Big Walnut Creek, and the other around the rim of the old stone quarry. Both courses will have some challenging hills.
