Race Preview: 2019 Banks Linear Trail Brave Run

If you’re looking for a race that won’t break the bank and is truly a benefit run, check out the Banks Linear Trail Brave Run. This 5K and 10K directly benefits the students at Banks Elementary School. In the past 8 years, this race has raised $40,000 for the Banks technology fund! The money raised has been used every year for technology that directly benefits students in the classroom and enhances their learning.

This year’s theme is Running Wild on the Linear Trail for Kids and Technology. The races start on the Banks High School track, then head out to the Banks-Vernonia Trail for an out and back 5K or 10K. Before the 5K and 10K start, there will be a free Kids Dash, so bring the little ones along with you. The deadline for race shirts is April 26, so register by then and you won’t miss out. There will be music, vendors, and an all-around good time running for the kids in Banks at this event.

Rumor has it, this is a nice flat course, so head on out to Banks for a fast 5K or 10K for just $20!
