Four Winds Invitational 5K & Fitness Walk, Sunday, June 10, 7:30am— Blackthorn Golf Club
SOUTH BEND – The Four Winds Invitational 5K might just be one of the best-kept secrets of the Michiana running scene. Picture a summer Sunday morning 5K run on the cart trails at one of the area’s most scenic and rolling golf courses – Blackthorn.
This year, the 5th annual Four Winds Invitational 5K run and walk will scramble out the final day of the LPGA tournament, with proceeds from all the events benefitting Beacon Children’s Hospital.
The entire 5K loop will be run on the course, with the start at the spectator’s entrance that backs up to the Jr. Irish soccer fields. The 5K was added to build awareness of the annual golf tournament and raise a little more money for the hospital. The race caps the end of the festivities to help promote family attendance for the last round of the tournament.
Race start is 7:30am, with chip-timing, T-shirts, overall top male/female awards and age-group awards.Register at runsignup.com/Race/IN/SouthBend/FourWindsInvitational5K and for more information on the week of the Four Winds Invitational activities, go to blackthorngolf.com
