Youth mentoring program hosting 5/10k walk and run event Aug. 21 There will be lots of activity at the National Guard Armory on Saturday, Aug. 21 in Elk Point.
Big Friends-Little Friends youth mentoring program is hosting a 5/10k walk and run, as well as a bike ride with routes up to 50 miles in length. A large influx of bike riders from area cycling clubs will participate, as the routes are well marked and all routes are on blacktop.
The longest routes extend this year to Vermillion, as well as north to near the Union County State Park, and then return to Elk Point. Five to six distances will be available, starting at eight miles up to 50.
For more information, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or call 605-356-2571. Registrations are welcome the day of the events, but should be sent in by Aug. 10 to reserve a t-shirt.
