Run 100 miles for Carl Benton – Fundraiser

Last weekend Carl ran the McNaughton Ultra Marathon. He ran 28 hours straight with only a 20 minute rest… He beat his record by 4 hours! Unfortunately he became ill after his 100 mile run and is in the hospital in Peoria. We would like to host a 2 mile informal fun run to raise funds for Carl and his family during this time.

Come out Saturday morning to Washington Park and run this 2 mile impromptu race. 50 runners + 2 miles = 100 miles for Carl!!! Get the idea??? 🙂

  • Cost: $10 (all money will be given to Carl and Penny Benton)
  • Race starts at 7:30 a.m.
  • There will be a card for everyone to sign. Plan to include your time from the race that morning.
  • Bring your own drink. We might have a clock.

The Park will not be closed to motorists so please be aware of traffic.  There is no limit to runners/walkers!!! We want as many runners/walkers as we can get!!! Pass the word along! Forward this to all of your family and friends! PLEASE INVITE ANYONE WHO MIGHT BE INTERESTED!

RSVP on FACEBOOK or just show up.  Find out more…
