Welcome to our 3nd annual “Run With the Buzzards” 5-10-15K to be held June 22 in Fabulous Thorntown! Sponsored by Boone County EMS and Witham Health Services, in cooperation with Boone County 4-H Clubs, Inc., our 2012 event attracted over 150 enthusiastic runners and walkers whose participation raised $2508.16 for Boone County 4-H members.
Again this year we will be starting at 7pm, to avoid the late afternoon heat. There should be ample time for everyone to complete their event before sunset. Starting at the
Thorntown Park we will again be utilizing the Farm Heritage Trail for the majority of the run. While primarily an “out and back” route, participants will again cross eerie Fallen Horse Bridge as they return to the finish line at the park.
Last year we had an enthusiastic group of volunteers handing out water, trail mix, and cool washcloths to participants along with offering encouragement. We look forward to offering the same great amenities, and even more this time around!
Mark your calendar and plan to attend one of the best family-friendly events in central Indiana. All ages and all skill levels are welcome, along with obedient leashed dogs!
Before or after the event you may want to browse the Sugar Creek Art Center, the Heritage Museum, or join your fellow runners and walkers at Stookey's Family Restaurant on Main Street. Famous for steaks, catfish, and onion rings, owner Jon Stookey will be open late to serve you.
We look forward to seeing everyone on June 22!
