4th Annual Pokanoka’s Trail Run/Walk A Benefit for Safe Passage Shabbona Lake State Park www.pokanokasrun@aol.com On Monday, July 4th, 2016, at 8 AM, Pokanoka’s Cafe at Shabbona Lake State Park will host the 4th Annual Pokanoka’s Trail Run/Walk at Shabbona Lake State Park. The Trail Run/Walk is a fundraising event for Safe Passage, DeKalb County’ Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault Agency. The mission of Safe Passage is to reduce or prevent domestic violence and sexual assault. Safe Passage offers a wide range of services to victims of domestic and sexual violence, including counseling, legal and medical advocacy, crisis intervention, community education, and a 24-hour support hotline. Established in 1981, Safe Passage continues to grow in an effort to serve more victims and their families. Pokanoka’s Trail Run/Walk is the most scenic, historic and unique Trail Run/Walk in Illinois. The Trail Run will be approximately 8 miles long. The Run will be along wooded trails and open prairie lands, as the runners circle around scenic Shabbona Lake. The Walk will be a circle loop thru approximately 1.8 miles of historic woods in Shabbona Lake State Park. Shabbona Lake State Park is located in Southern DeKalb County approximately 25 miles Southwest of DeKalb, Illinois. The Park attracts approximately 475,000 visitors a year. The 8 mile Trail Race/Walk will be timed by RACE TIME, Inc. from Winfield, Illinois. Awards will be given to the top three finishers in the following categories: Male, Female, Youth under 18. For you runners, we have a “hill” that is a gut checker. Then all of the sudden, as you are crossing a 1/2 mile earthen dam, you see in the distance, the finish line. You get that extra boost of energy, to bring it on home, to the cheers of the crowd!!! For you walkers, where else can you leisurely stroll thru historic woodland that once belonged to a brave Native American Indian, Chief Shabbona. Then as you exit the woods, you see the breath taking glistening beauty of Shabbona Lake. It makes a great day to be outdoors!!! This year the Run will start at precisely 8 AM. The Walk will start at 8:10 AM. Hope to see you on Monday, July 4th, 2016, at the 4th Annual Pokanoka’s Trail Run/Walk in Shabbona Lake State Park. All proceeds go to Safe Passage, DeKalb County’s Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault Center.
