The low-key fun starts at the First National Community Bank parking lot at 8 a.m. and proceeds along city streets and pathways. The route varies from year to year, but it is always long enough to warrant an extra ‘guilt-free’ piece of pie at your Thanksgiving dinner.

Although the run is free, participants are encouraged to bring a food item that can be donated to New Richmond’s Five Loaves Food Shelf. Food items in great demand are dried fruit, applesauce cups, whole grain bread, whole grain cereal, peanut butter, instant oatmeal, canned tuna and salmon, rice, pasta, canned vegetables, paper towels, toilet paper, toothpaste and tooth brushes. Cash donations can be made as well. 

Questions regarding the run or food donations can be directed to Jim Heebink at 715-246-5137.
