Run/walk to benefit Museum Saturday

Monday, September 25, 2006

A 4-mile run and 2-mile walk to benefit the Putnam County Museum will send participants through the DePauw Nature Park on Saturday, Sept. 30.

Beginning at 9 a.m., the run/walk occurs on packed stone trails in a wooded area. One route will be along th Big Walnut Creek and the other around the rim of the old stone quarry. The routes will not be the same as the July Mental Health Association race, and both will have some challenging hills.

First place for both men and women in both events will be a $50 gift certificate from The Running Company in Broad Ripple. Second place is $30 and third place is $25. There will be age group awards in both events as well as a drawing for gift certificates to area restaurants.

Registration prior to Sept. 26 is $15 with a t-shirt or $11 without a t-shirt. Registration after Sept. 26 is $20 with no t-shirt guarantee or $5 for a t-shirt only.

The event is free for anyone age 70 or older or age 10 and younger.
