Fleet Feet Sports Fox Valley hosted a kick-off event for the Apple Creek 50K & Relay Dec. 13 at the store. We were excited to have two relay teams in the event last year, and our staff is pumped about the 2016 event May 14 on Appleton's northside.
From the event Web site: The Apple Creek 50K, presented by ALTRA shoes, consists of a 7.75-mile loop done four times. 2.6 miles on the roads and 5.15 on the trails! The course will connect the Purdy Farm trail to Plamann Park and includes some incredible single track, prairie and road running. This course has it all and will most certainly surprise you with its difficulty!
Each registrant will receive a t-shirt and buff. Finishers will receive a finisher's medal.
After the race, enjoy some pizza and other food as you watch your fellow participants finish.
Proceeds will benefit Snowdrop Foundation WI - a 501(c) 3 organization that provides scholarships to pediatric cancer patients and survivors while raising awareness and funding for continued research to cure childhood cancer. A small portion of proceeds will also be directed towards yearly trail maintenance at each of the parks.
