Heron Trail Run event Aug. 18
Special to The OBSERVER
JAMESTOWN — The Heron Farm & Event Center are soon to be filled with the sounds of music, happy campers, and trail runners in the Inaugural Heron Trail Run event to take place on Sunday, Aug. 18.
“We are pleased to be hosting a 5K Trail Run & Walk with Infinity for multiple reasons. For one, we love Infinity and are excited to have found another way to collaborate with them. Secondly, we have great trails through our woodlands and farm pastures that will be challenging for the runners and super fun for the walkers,” said Julie and Steve Rockcastle, owners of The Heron.
Participants can run or walk on the beautiful trails of The Heron grounds, home of the Great Blue Heron Music Festival and Green Heron Growers. The 5K Run/Walk registration for this event is $25. Camping, meals, music and a bonfire are also available to enjoy. The event is sanctioned by USATF and all donations from this event will support music and arts instruction at the Infinity Center in Jamestown.
“Music is a unifier for all people and as a nonprofit organization, we are always eager to try new fundraising ideas. Julie and the Great Blue Heron folks have always been generous in their support of the Infinity program since its inception. We are grateful for their invitation for Infinity to be a part of this event and are excited to share the day with everyone,” said Infinity Executive Director Shane Hawkins.
