Newberry run set for June

NEWBERRY – The fifth annual Curt Knierim Memorial Run is set for Saturday, June 29, at the Newberry High School track.

The Kids’ mile run is around the track, while the 5-kilometer and 8K runs will head out to a trail south of town. Start time is 8:30 a.m.

This event has raised more than $23,000 the past four years, according to spokesman Kevin Knierim. Funds collected from participants registering and donating will be given to organizations that have the most participants and volunteers.

To register, go to Registering or donating can be done online using a credit card or by mail with a check.

There will be a team competition in which a group or organization with the most participants will be awarded a traveling trophy for the year. Newberry High School’s varsity baseball team took the award last year.
