Maria Schall, founder and event director, recently announced this year’s Brew Run and Walk will be held on Friday, July 26th at the beautiful Sprague Farm & Brew Works located at 22043 US HWY 6 & 19 in nearby Venango.
Participants can run, jog or walk their way around this approximately two mile trail which borders scenic and historic French Creek and winds its way through sixty acres of pristine farmland.
The 7 PM start time will give everyone an adequate opportunity to complete the two-mile course in the cool of the evening while enjoying a canopy of oak trees, fields of switch grass, wooded trails and perhaps a bit of mud in the late July twilight. Runners and walkers on the 2 mile trail can stop along the route to enjoy some refreshment before returning to the Sprague Farm Pavilion where, after crossing the finish line, will have access to snacks. Also, each runner will receive a refreshment from the Sprague Farm & Brew Works and the Riverside Brewing Company. Other beverages will be available as well.
This is a win/win opportunity for everyone. Participants can pre-register for a $30 fee by July 20th. Late registration up to and including the day of the event is $35. Register online or drop off or mail a check made payable to County YMCA with the registration form to County YMCA 12285 YMCA Drive, Edinboro, PA 16412
For this reasonable fee, everyone will have the opportunity to join fellow runners and walkers and to enjoy the summer vistas of French Creek valley while proceeds from the Brew Run will be directed to benefit Edinboro’s own County YMCA.
Registration forms are available at the main desk at the County Y, Brink Ink Screen Printing & Embroidery and the Lakeside Bagel and Deli, all located on Route 6N west of Edinboro; at the Sprague Farm & Brew Works at 22113 U.S. Highway 6 & 19 just north of Venango in nearby Crawford County and at Achilles Running Shop, 2309 W 12th St. in Erie.
