celebrating 6 years under the stars!

Adding a little fun and our own version of friendship as we celebrate our 6th Anniversary of the Summer Night Trail!

Each finisher will receive a yellow rose when they cross the finish line.  Long associated with the sun and it’s life-giving warmth, yellow represents the warm feelings of friendship, wisdom, and power.  This is our little way of saying thank you and passing on some happy vibes for 2019!
