Join us in the 3rd Annual Birch Run Charity Road Race, we recieved outstanding feedback from both spectators and participants about the finish line excitement and giveaways. The originators of the event were able to give $2000 to the Birch Run School Elementary School for the expansion of the projector and virtual chalkboard experience in three seperate classrooms. This fundraising is only possible through folks like yourself who came out last year and embraced the event and its charitable recipients. We are excited to say this year we will continue with free kids race under 8 and our sponsors will be providing those kids with free tshirts, youth invovlement is very important. Come out and embrace a great Sunday afternoon and our expanded 5K course, and stretch your legs for the flat and fast 10K course, we promise accuracy this year in the courses!
