Third Annual “Prairie Chase” Run/Walk
June 24, 2017
This event is held as a fundraiser for the Friends of Pheasant Branch Conservancy, an environmental non-profit based in Middleton that is concerned with restoring, protecting and promoting the Pheasant Branch Conservancy and its watershed for all to enjoy.
The event has two running competitions that will follow a beautiful, wide crushed limestone path that circles the Conservancy. The 5K walk will go through the prairie fields in and around Fredericks Hill and will showcase the efforts of the Friends restoration work over the last 22 years.
After the race, refreshments will be served and there will be live music. In addition, awards will be given to the top men and women for the 5K and 10K run events and a raffle of some great gifts will be offered as well.
Also, this year there will be a short “kids run” just before the main event. It will be a short race around a soccer field near the shelter where the event begins and ends. Children of all ages are encouraged to join as part of the family entry.
