(HARRODSBURG) - A Free Trail Safety Seminar for woman and girls will be held on Saturday, July 13th from 11 a.m. till Noon. The event is sponsored by Guardian Martial Arts Studio.

For security reasons the exact location will be provided to those who register to participate.

The seminar is free, but class size is limited.

The seminar will be led by Gary Johnson and his wife, Liane.

The purpose of the seminar is to increase safety awareness for women and girls who plan to utilize one of Bloomington's most popular recreation attractions, the B-Line/Clear Creek/Rails To Trails areas. Johnson and his wife will provide safety information and knowledge that can be useful in everyday situations, on and off the trails.

This event is open to women and girls 16-and older. Girls under 16-years-old must be accompanied by an adult female. Participants will walk approximately a half a mile section of trail so dress appropriately.

The seminar should last an hour.
