(BLOOMINGTON) - Monroe Lake is inviting all levels of runners and walkers to the inaugural First Day Fitness Trail Run/Walk at Fairfax SRA on January 1.
This non-competitive, untimed event, encourages everyone to begin 2014 on the right foot. Start time is 3 p.m.
Distance options are 4 miles and 1.33 miles. Both routes wind through the woods.
Registration is $10 and includes an hors d'oeuvres buffet at Fourwinds Resort's Windjammer Grill afterward. There will also be a drawing for gift certificates from the Indiana Running Company.
Day-of registration will be available for the same price. However, only advance-registered participants get a goody bag, which will include a $15 gift certificate for the Windjammer Grill at Fourwinds Resort. You can register through Dec. 30 at inrunco.com/firstday.
Registration and check-in on Jan. 1 is from 2 to 2:45 p.m. at the Bay View Shelter in Fairfax SRA, across the road from Fourwinds Resort.
