We had another successful Wilderness Rim Run/Walk in our community on Saturday, May 16th.  No rain and not too hot – perfect for running and walking outdoors. The trail additions to the courses on the 5K and the park run for the kid’s 1K received rave reviews!  Also new this year was the water station was supplied with our local cub scouts and volunteer firefighters, complete with aid car.
