South Summit Trails hosts run
The South Summit Trails Foundation hosted its first ever athletic event on Saturday — a 5K around on High Star Ranch’s trails. Usually the trails are reserved for mountain biking, but the ranch granted the foundation access for the event.
According to Amber Nelson, board treasurer of the South Summit Trails Foundation, 35 runners participated, then some made their way to the harvest festival afterwards.
“We had a great time and (received) a lot of positive feedback,” Nelson said. “We will look at what other options we can offer in Kamas Valley.”
The foundation, which formed two years ago, has a goal of promoting, maintaining and building trails throughout the Kamas Valley.
