Spiedie Fest Events: The Kelly LaBare 5k Run/Walk
There are a few things that happen at Spiedie Fest which aren’t really highlighted. I thought I’d fix that!
My first year here, I stumbled across the Kelly LaBare Run/Walk. Literally. I thought it was cool, as I almost got caught up in the runners, that while all the action within the walking/running path was going on that the path itself was being used too.The runners/walkers use it as their route.
If you are wondering, as I did, why it is called the Kelly LaBare Run/Walk let me tell you. Kelly was a running enthusiast and very much into education advocacy when she died suddenly at the age of 25. To honor her, this event was set up. It’s a fitting way to keep her memory alive and meaningful.
This run/walk happens to be wildly popular with a large number of entrants already signed up for the Sunday event. We’d love you to join in! Here are the particulars:
