Welty Environmental Center is sponsoring a virtual 5K to raise funds to support environmental education in the Stateline area. We’re trying to collectively go the full distance of the Rock River (515 km/320 mi).
Register on our website, then choose a time and place from Aug. 17-Sept. 7, and walk/run/bike/paddle/swim 5k (3.1 mi). Feel free to go longer (or shorter), whatever works for you! If you’d like to complete your distance along the Rock River itself, there are lots of options along The Rock River Trail (https://rockrivertrail.com/).
Send us your distance and a photo (if you’d like) when you’re done, and we’ll post them weekly and keep track on a map of the Rock River. Everyone who participates will get an event bandana sent to them the week of Sept. 7.
