May 5 is a ways off but thought I'd mention the Maple Syrup Fun Run now since the pre-registration deadline has been moved back to this Sunday, April 22.By signing up by this date you're assured of getting a 2018 Maple Syrup Fun Run T Shirt. You can also sign up as a Couch Potato and get a t shirt and also admission to the pancake brunch. It'll be served up from 10-1PM on May 5 at River Bend Nature Center in Faribault. It features maple syrup made from River Bend trees. You also have the option to sign up as a Remote Runner. You'll get your t shirt and you can walk or run wherever you wish.

The Maple Syrup Fun Run features a 1 mile fun walk along with trail runs of 5K, 10K, 25K or 50K. Top finishers in each race get a bottle of River Bend maple syrup.

You can get further details on the River Bend Nature Center web site.
