NEW FOR 2021!
Monthly group run kicks off April 5th, 2021
Basketball may be on tap later Monday night, April 5, at Wooden Legs Brewing Co., 309 Fifth St., downtown Brookings, but at 5:30 p.m. Prairie Striders is serving up its first group run.
The monthly runs of about three miles will begin and end at Wooden Legs, which also is offering $1 off specials to participants. There also will be a one-mile route for walkers and those wanting a short run. Prairie Striders will have pace leaders, but the runs are open to nonmembers and club members.
The effort is being organized by Andy Carlson, director of the Oakwood Lakes Trail Run. He called the group runs, to be held on the first Monday April through September, “an excellent opportunity to bond with other runners while still getting a workout in.”
After each run, there will be a drawing for a $20 gift certificate from 605 Running Co., Sioux Falls.
In addition, after the April 5 run, Prairie Striders will present its Friend of Running Awards from 2019 and 2020 as well as 2020 participant awards.
