Beaver Lake Nature Center will host the sixth annual Upstate Chiropractic Beaver Lake Run at 9:50 a.m. Sunday Aug. 16. The event features 5K and 10K runs, a Youth Run and a Fun Walk. All proceeds will benefit the Beaver Lake Nature Center Visitor Center renovation fund. Last year, more than 200 runners and walkers participated.
"While this is advertised as mostly a 5K and 10K run, we don't want to forget about the walkers out there either," said Dr. Eric Croucher of Upstate Chiropractic. "We really want to stress the wellness aspect of the event. Getting out, being active, becoming healthy. And there is no better place for it than at Beaver Lake."
Panera Bread will donate bagels for the event and Red Bull will provide drinks. The price is $17 advance registration for the 5K and 10K. Registration on the day of the event begins at 8 a.m. and is $20.
Beaver Lake Nature Center is an Onondaga County Park located three miles west of Baldwinsville. For more information, call 638-2519 or visit OnondagaCountyParks.com.
