Jonesboro Police DARE will be hosting the DARE 2 Tread the Trails event for the 4th year! We hope to make it bigger and better for you this year! We asked our participants what they would like and they wanted longer distance options! We listened to you!
On October 16th, we want you to come out and enjoy our trails at Craighead forest. We have changed the location of the starting line. It will start by access 1 at the boat ramp area. Parking will be at access 1 and the field below the dam (if dry). This year we will have a 5k trail run (with approx. 1 mile of chat by the lake), 10k trail run (with approx. 1.2 miles of chat around the lake), and a Half marathon trail run ( this will be 2 loops of the 10k). We will start the half marathon at 8am, the 10k will start at 8:30am, and the 5k will start at 9am. We plan on doing the 5k/10k awards around 10:30 ish. We will have a 4 hour time limit on the half marathon. We are planning on awards around noon. It could be a little earlier if everyone finishes by then. Timing will be done by Stearns timing again this year.
We have added a ruck category this year. Participants will be able to register and carry the weight of their choosing. You can decide if you want to do the 5k/10k when you show up. We are working on the event patch.
On October 17th we will have our fun mountain bike poker ride. It will start at access 1 this year. We are doing it a little different this year. We will have the 5k/10k routes to ride. We also have a couple local riders that will take you on whatever you want to ride! We want you to have a great time on the trails! We moved it to Sunday in hopes that some of the runners would be able to participate it the ride. If you have never done a mountain bike poker ride, be prepared to have fun and meet some new people. You will draw a poker card before you start. There will be three more stops where you draw cards. You will draw your final card and turn it in at the finish. You may purchase more cards before the event starts! If you have multiple hands, you will hand one to the person at the stop. You will draw for that hand. You will then hand them your next hand and draw for it. You do not get to pick which card goes with what hand. (gotta keep it fair for those with only one hand) When everyone finishes, the person with the highest hand gets to pick from the prizes first. The person with the lowest hand picks next. We will give the remaining participants a ticket and draw until prizes are gone.
All of the money raised goes to support our local DARE program. We purchase shirts, books, and supplies for all of our 5th grade students.
