~~The Country Run is a 5K fun run brought to you by Corner Store that will bring out your inner cowpoke or cowgirl. Participants are encouraged to wear over-the-top country attire and gallop, trot or do-si-do their way across that finish line. Along the way, runners will encounter farm-themed zones with hay bales, tractor tires and giant inflatable pigs and cows. Afterwards, everyone is invited to stick around for a family-friendly country fair with free sponsor swag, carnival games, live music, food and a beer garden. Chip timing is available for those who wish to compete, and prizes will be awarded for the fastest runners in each class.
100 percent of proceeds will benefit charitable causes, including Big Brothers Big Sisters, the world’s largest donor and volunteer-supported mentoring network making meaningful, monitored matches between adult volunteers (“Bigs”) and children (“Littles”), ages 6 through 18, in communities across the globe. Additional funds will be donated to local children’s charities in each city.
