Juneteenth Fun Run/Walk
Juneteenth (short for “June Nineteenth”) marks the day when federal troops arrived in Galveston, Texas in 1865 to take control of the state and ensure that all enslaved people be freed. The troops’ arrival came a full two and a half years after the signing of the Emancipation Proclamation. Juneteenth honors the end to slavery in the United States.
This 4k or 6.4K walk/run/roll is both an opportunity for the community to gather and, celebrate. Signage and drink stations will be present to guide participants on their route.
Here is a link for the 4k route that starts and finishes at Right Brain Brewery and turns around at Medalie Park.
Here is a link for the full 6.4k route that trails counter-clockwise around the Boardman Lake Loop Trail starting and finishing at Right Brain Brewery.
There is a $5 registration fee to support the continued anti-racism advocacy of Northern Michigan E3. If you would like to support more please use the link to purchase a $25 shirt and other materials in which you can have shipped to you or pick up at the event.
Afterward, feel free to enjoy the community at Right Brain where food and drinks will be available. Food will be available for purchase from the Chubby Unicorn.
