In 2022 we celebrate the 21st annual Jim Schoemehl run to fight against ALS (also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease) and support a local family. This year we again will have a hybrid style run where runners, trotters, and walkers of all ages are invited to participate either virtually or in person. We will follow various Covid-19 precautions to keep our participants and volunteers safe (check out our FAQ for more details!) during our 5k, and 10k runs. We hope to see you on May 7th!

We cannot guarantee a t-shirt if you register after April 22nd.
