Annual Davy Crockett Bear Chase set for April 10
It’s getting closer. The Davy Crockett Bear Chase marathon sponsored by Trinity County Chamber of Commerce is coming up on April 10, 2010. If you run, jog or just walk, even if you just watch you can participate. It’s a great time for the whole family to spend some time in the outdoors. The course has already been checked out and will be checked again prior to the date. Most of the runners have said they enjoy this run because it is through the pines of East Texas. They get to enjoy some of nature. There will be a marathon and a half-marathon beginning at 7:00 a.m. The 5-K will begin at 7:30 and the Lt’l Critter Possum Walk for the small fry will begin at 8:00. You can pre-register by calling the Chamber office at 936-642-1715 but registration on the date of the marathon is allowed. Arrangements have been made for different groups to man water stations along the route and health care will be available for checking blood pressures, blood sugars and minor injures. Local citizens are encouraged to participate in any way you are able. There are close to 200 runners and many of them are from even out of state. This is qualifying run for the Boston Marathon. If you are able to assist the Chamber with this activity, they would appreciate getting your call at 642-1715.
