Run raises money for Pulpit

The second annual Pulpit Rock Fun Run was held to fund trail maintenance.

A group of runners climbed Pulpit Rock to raise money for trail maintenance.

Pulpit Rock’s biggest fans raced up the trail to show their love for the landmark.

The second annual Pulpit Rock Fun Run and Hike raised $500 for Pulpit’s trail maintenance Sunday.

The purpose of the event is to bring the community together, get out for a hike or run with family and friends and show appreciation for the beautiful trail and the people that maintain it.

Half of the participants ran up to the flag pole with Travis Hauck taking the men’s title and Jaclyn Dexter topping the women’s race.

The rest of the bunch were up and down Pulpit before the rain started and everyone left with a gift from several sponsors.

The organizers would like to thank DeVito’s Shoes, Gerick Cycle and Ski, Lakeside Physio, Spearhead, all of the participants and the Friends of Pulpit Rock for contributing to the event. Several people took part to raise funds.
