Churchill County is hosting its a Recycled Run on July 19 at the Churchill County Fairgrounds. The festivities start at 6 p.m. and the race kicks off at 7:30 p.m. Parks and Recreation Supervisor Danny Gleich said the new event provides numerous options for runners.
Gleich said the run was scheduled for one week later, but said a wedding at Dry Gulch was already scheduled for July 26.
Despite the scheduling glitch, participants will choose between medals and T-shirts from past events.
For example, an athlete who missed a Dust Devil Triathlon may choose a T-shirt or medal from a previous event.
He said the county is working on securing a bounce house for children and possibly a movie to watch for those individuals who are not running. In addition, the Clockwork Running Club, a local organization, will grill food as part of a fundraiser, while Gleich said the county or Daily Grind will provide drinks.
The run, he added, will not be officially timed and is more of a fun-run for families.
