Join us on Thursday, August 22, 2019 at 6:30 pm for the 4th annual Pretzel Run hosted by St. Robert School. Proceeds raised from this event will support St. Robert School while promoting health and wellness in children and adults. The event will also promote a strong sense of community!  The run will take place on the scenic Oak Leaf Trail in Estabrook Park and concludes with a family social at the Estabrook Beer Garden and playground area. Participants will receive plenty of goodies at the finish line, including a large soft pretzel, chocolate-covered pretzels, Snyder's pretzel bags, fruit and Water Street Brewery root beer. We will also have live music to cheer on participants as they finish. The top winners in each age division will receive gift cards for local stores, including Performance Outfitters, lululemon, and Athleta. We welcome all runners and walkers to join in either the 5K run, the 1.5 mile fun run/walk or the 100 meter Kid’s Pretzel Dash for children 8 and under. Last year's event had almost 500 participants, and we are looking to increase that number. Don't miss the fun!
