|It’s Time for Some Super Fun: 1st Annual Superfun(d) Run April 18|
What do you get when you mix a pair of running shoes, a beautiful spring day, a broken dam, and arsenic? The 1st annual Superfun(d) Run, sponsored by Run Wild Missoula, on Saturday, April 18th at the new trails in Bonner.
The “run” is actually 3 events – a 1 mile fun run, a 5K and 10 K race. All abilities are welcome, including walkers. Prizes for placing, plus door prizes will also be given out.
BONNER SCHOOL FAMILIES – YOUR WHOLE FAMILY CAN PARTICIPATE FOR $25!!!!
Late Registration: Apr. 14-18 $20.00 adults, $15.00 under 18. You can register the day of the race also.
Special events add to the Superfun(d) Run on April 18
To end the festivities, a horse mounted color guard made up of members of the Missoula County Sheriff’s Posse and 4-H will close the 10K run on the Bonner/Turah Equestrian Trail with flags representing the United States of America, State of Montana, the Missoula County Sheriff's Posse, and 4-H.
All of these activities are sure to work up an appetite so plan to cap off the morning with a breakfast of pancakes, scrambled eggs, ham, and fruit at Our Savior’s Lutheran Church. Breakfast starts at 10 and continues until all walkers have a chance to finish the race and enjoy a hearty breakfast. Part of the proceeds from the pancake breakfast will benefit the World Hunger Fund.
