Newton Falls – Newton Falls Kiwanis Club announces a new race route for its annual Labor Day 4-Mile Run and 2-Mile Walk. On September 1, rain or shine, runners and walkers will begin and end near Faces Lounge, the registration site. The course will feature school property and pass through the historic covered bridge.
Bob Wujcik, Kiwanis president, hopes for a great turnout in this anniversary year. The club has donated over $5000 in each of the last few years to the Senior Citizens Van. They hope to contribute at least as much to the van program this year, and also have additional funds to benefit their two scholarships. Sponsors help offset the set-up and advertising costs, and racers and walkers will directly benefit the van program.
By registering early, participants will get a shirt and a registration fee that is less than the day-of-race fee. There will be a post-race meal thanks to Faces Lounge.
To see a map of the new course, prizes, shirt offers, and the online registration form, go to www.gopherarun.com. At that site are also photos from last year’s race.
