WALKERS, RUNNERS of all abilities, and ANIMAL LOVERS!  Join us for a quiet morning in the country and the 4th Annual “Run for the Rescue” to raise funds toward the needs of the Peacefield horses and to raise awareness of the issue of unwanted, abused and neglected horses in the Wabash Valley! 

For questions, or to request race entry forms, email or call Wendy at wjmirth@gmail.com / 812-877- 0302.  For updates and information, see our facebook event page.

The out-and-back course: The 5k race/fitness walk begins & ends at Peacefield (9811 East Davis Ave. Terre Haute, IN 47805).  Runners and walkers will head west on Davis to Main, then south on Main to Grotto, turn around past the Vigo County Conservation Club (corner of Grotto and Randall), then head back to the finish at Peacefield.  Water will be available at the turn-around area.   All kilometers are clearly posted on this accurate and moderately challenging course.  The streets are not closed to traffic, but will be well marked for safety.

5K Pre-registration options:  EARLY BIRD PRE-REGISTRATION is highly recommended to receive a discounted entry and ensure a tee shirt.  The Early Bird fee is $30 for the 5k.  Enter online or print and mail your entry to Run for the Rescue, 5046 N.
