Thanksgiving is a time for many traditions whether it’s eating, gathering with family and friends, football, even shopping on Black Friday.
For those people who want to get out and enjoy the post-feast morning with a little competition or even a brisk walk, Hesston College is hosting the 22nd Annual Howard Hustle Two Mile Walk, Jog, or Run on Friday, Nov. 29.
Beginning at 11 a.m., the race starts in front of the Hesston College arch on Main Street. From there, the route winds through the Dyck Arboretum of the Plains and back to campus.
“The best part about it is that anybody can do it,” Organizer Clay Stauffer said. “If people want to be competitive and run, they can sprint it or race it. There are people in the past who have brought kids in a stroller and they have walked it. It’s a great opportunity to get out and be involved.”
Registration is ongoing with early registration ending on Nov. 21 costing $20. Late registration costs $25 after November 21. Walk-ins are also welcome up to the time when registration closes. Last year, 427 people participated with the high being 492 people in 2011.
