According to Ann Wade, the Manawa Little Wolf River Trail Committee continues working on the growth and maintenance of these trails.
“In the past few years, we’ve added Highway B paved section and with the help of donations and volunteers, paved Beech Street trail,” Wade said. “This has created a safe route to school and safe walkway for the public as well.”
The race course will include these trails, and the 10k course will also include the newest paved trail along Beech Street, which is just one of the projects that has been completed with funds raised from this event.
The Manawa Little Wolf River Trail Committee is always in need of committee members, volunteers and donations.
