KEWEENAW COUNTY -- The North Woods Conservancy (NWC) will sponsor the 2013 Fall Color Classic 8-K Trail Run/Walk (formerly Cobble Gobble) on Saturday, Oct. 5.

The course takes you through the woods, across a beaver dam, and along half a mile of the beautiful Lake Superior shoreline. Gorgeous!

The cost is $30 for adults and $25 for students, including a soft cotton race t-shirt (same day registration is $5 more).  All participants will be entered into a drawing to be held after the race for prizes such as outdoor/exercise gear, restaurant meals, and hotel stays. Prizes will be given to the overall male/female winners, as well as to the top male/female in each age group.

Walkers start at 9 a.m.; runners start at 10 a.m. Meet at the Gratiot River North Trailhead a half hour before start time. Register NOW -- save money and reserve your t-shirt size.

Refreshments and snacks will be available before and after the race.
