Calling all pioneers, soldiers, and settlers! Join us for the Glen Carbon Covered Bridge Run held on June 17th, 2017 at 8:00am. We plan to take you back in time to the rich history of this mining town. Volunteers will be dressed as early settlers, with photo opportunities in black and white photography. There will be signs lining the route telling the history of Glen Carbon, with hopes that you will take a stroll after the run. Runners will run down the newly paved, wooded, Ronald J Foster Heritage Trail for a flat and fast, out-and-back route. There is a 5K, 5 Mile and a kids 1 Mile option.
*New for 2017 - Finishers medals for the kids who run the 1 Mile fun run!
*New for 2017 - The Glen Carbon Homecoming festivities will kick off at 11:00am! Plan to stay after the run, to ride rides, eat, play games and browse the vendor tents!
*New for 2017 - Goshen Triple Crown Series! 3 local races, all the swag and an additional Goshen Triple Crown Series finishers medal. The Series includes: Run for Bonifest 5K, Route 66 10K and the Covered Bridge Run 5 Mile.
