Third annual Higgins Lake Sunrise Run Saturday
The third annual Higgins Lake Sunrise Run will take place June 16.
Run day registration begins at 6 a.m. on Saturday at the South Higgins Lake State Park.
The event consists of a half marathon run, 10K and 5K walk/run and a one-mile Fun Run. Run Director Catherine Erickson said that while the Roscommon Rotary is the official host of the Higgins Lake Sunrise Run, it could not be a success without a total community effort. Gerrish Township law enforcement teamed with the local ACT NOW group and various CERT groups in the immediate area to provide safety check points throughout the race course.
In addition, there will be seven water stations along the course, manned by various youth groups and organizations. The Fun Run is also hosted by the Roscommon Area Youth Booster Club.
A pasta dinner will kick things off Friday at the Roscommon Knights of Columbus Hall from 5 to 7:30 p.m.
