Trail running in Elkins
Elkins YMCA's Century of Service Series wrapped things up with free lunch provided by the Highland Cafe' for all participants and $100 checks to the finishers who completed all races in the entire series. Much of the group at the ramble was local. In the last few years, Elkins has sought to build a fitness program through local organizations, to help the small community get active. The Century Series is just one small part of a greater whole.

The informal run and walk was set, and afterwards 20 or so prizes were awarded with the cash along with a fantasic lunch.

Look for more activities to sprout in Elkins in 2006. In the future, a family fun Tour de Elkins series of bike rides is on the agenda.
