The second-annual “Run for the Donut” is planned and ready to go.
Runners are advised to lace up their shoes and start preparing for the 5K race hosted by the Rainy Running Club, the Municipality of Emo, and the “Run for the Donut” committee.
You are invited to run or walk the scenic five-km course at Emo’s Lions Park and then enjoy doughnuts and prizes at the finish line!
Registration forms are available at the Emo municipal office and the CIBC branch in Emo or by e-mailing emodonutrun@gmail.com
The fee is $10 to enter the event or $20 if you would like a commemorative T-shirt (please register by Oct. 12 if you would like a shirt to ensure you get your preferred size).
Then mark Saturday, Oct. 20 on your calendar and plan on participating in this year’s “Run for the Donut.”
The race time is 10 a.m. See you there!
