“Presidents” Fun Run

6:30PM at Hart Park (back of parking lot)

The “Prez” says:  “Show up for my fun run!”.  If you’ve never been to one of the president’s (Pete Abraham) fun runs, you’ll be in for treat if you come this week.  Not only does Pete take over grilling duties for all of us to enjoy but word has it that he hates running out of beer, so please be assured that you’ll be well taken care of after your run.  Lots of food, lots of beverages and lots of great people!

NOTE 2: Many runners show up early to get some extra miles in…why not join new friends before our official start at 6:30?

The Badgerland Strider “Fun Runs” are FREE to all MEMBERS.  If you are contemplating joining and/or new, PLEASE come and introduce yourself to the organizers and/or anyone else to meet new people and make it more fun for all of us!
