This Saturday, May 16th is the first annual ForeShore Adventure Run on Pere Marquette Beach Park in Muskegon, MI. I will be running with coworkers from the Mlive Media Group in the morning as my official #AdventureSaturday activity for the weekend. There are 2.5K and 5K options with 11 obstacles on the 2.5K and an additional 8 on the 5K. There is something fun about obstacle course races, an element of adventure and physical challenge that running doesn’t give you.
I spoke to Dan Skogland and Jim Boes from the Muskegon Rescue Mission to get some details about what the race stands for and what it is supporting. “ForeShore Adventure Run is about running to overcome life’s obstacles. Participants will literally overcome obstacles on a sandy and wet 5k course. The money raised will be used by Muskegon Rescue Mission to help homeless men, women and children overcome obstacles in their lives.
Muskegon Rescue Mission has been caring for homeless and hungry men, women and children since 1907. We provide emergency shelter, food, long-term residential recovery program, job training, clothing, personal care items, baby pantry and more. By relieving the immediate needs we able to address the root cause of their distress and offer the spiritual nourishment necessary to effect true and lasting change. Our Objective is to bring people to a saving knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ.”
It will be fun to run in this inaugural event and look forward to this event becoming a permanent fixture on the annual calendar.
