Please join us for a West River Trail Benefit Run/Walk on July 27, 2013 at 9:00 am.

This mass start, self-guided event will begin at the trailhead behind the Marina and follow the trail through picturesque natural settings which include beautiful views of the river.
Participants can run or walk as little or as much as they like*.
Mile markers on the first section (3.5 miles) to Rice Farm Road will help participants measure their progress.
A small group of runners will be running all the way to Townshend Dam.
There will be snacks and water near the Rice Farm Rd trailhead, and also upon return at the Marina trailhead.
A suggested donation of $20 will be collected upon sign-in at 8:30 the morning of the event. All proceeds will go to the Friends of the West River Trail for future trail development, enhancement and maintenance.

*Please note! This is a self-guided event and participants will need to return to the start on foot or make arrangements for a ride at the covered bridge in West Dummerston or beyond.

Please email questions to Tim Fleming at timspin@myfairpoint.net
