Local Running Club Retires Summer Kids' Runs
Danville, IL (March 15, 2010) - After 17 consecutive years, the Kennekuk Road Runners announce the retirement of their annual kids' runs.
Nationally recognized, and used as a pattern by other midwestern running clubs, the summer long event of seven race nights, plus "trophy/pizza night", grew every year - from a handful of runners in Lincoln Park in the early 90s, to more than 500 participants ages 0 to 18 every week in the last few years.
"We thank the community for their participation, our dozens of corporate and private donors, the all-volunteer staff drawn from the Kennekuk Road Runners, and particularly the Miller family," stated Kennekuk President Scott Hendren, "who served as race directors throughout it's entire history, continually improving the event."
The Kennekuk Road Runners invite interested runners, young and old, to attend their Wednesday night Fun Runs at Kickapoo State Park June 2nd. Additional information available at http://kennekuk.com.
