GAMBIER, Ohio — Before the cool autumn air descends on Knox County, participate in a nature run along the Kokosing River on Saturday, Oct. 19. The 5K/10K races will start at 9:30 a.m. and follow a course around the southern trail system at Kenyon College’s Brown Family Environmental Center, 9781 Laymon Road.
David Heithaus, director of green initiatives at Kenyon, noted that the race is organized to help people engage with nature, in keeping with the office’s “healthy lifestyles, healthy planet” mission. The route begins flat and fast along the river and climbs up to the pines before coming back down through the prairie.
Online registration is available at racepenguin.com/
Parking for the race is available at the BFEC. The race is co-sponsored by Kenyon’s Social Board, Hillside Veterinary Clinic and other community partners. For more information, email Kenyon’s Office of Green Initiatives at email@example.com.
