It doesn’t seem possible that this year the Lake Gregory annual Run through the Pines will celebrate its 36th year on Saturday, August 8. Where did the past 35 years go? I guess they “ran away.”
Well, mark your calendar for this year great race on August 8. Sponsored by the Rim of the World Recreation and Park District this annual event always brings out several hundred participants and statistics show that 80 percent of these hearty people are mountain residents.
The race is held at Lake Gregory in Crestline down Lake Drive and it is a huge event. Hundreds of spectators always show up to support the runners and family members and friends always add so much to the excitement.
If you would like to sponsor there are “sponsorship” packages available. Show off your business and show your community spirit all at the same time with coupons, discounts or sponsor a sign on the run course.
To help the recreation district defray some of the costs of this great annual event sponsorships are available from a gold sponsorship at $500; a silver sponsorship at $250 or a bronze sponsorship at $150. To sponsor a “mile marker” the charge is $35.
