An official date for parkrun has been scheduled for Saturday, Nov. 18 at the Cedar River Trail, starting and finishing at the Riverview Park restrooms.

The event is free and open to everyone. Those volunteering or participating will meet at 8:30 a.m. prior to the run beginning at 9 a.m.

This timed 5K will be held every Saturday at 9 a.m. (or at 8 a.m. during Daylight Saving Time).

In weeks to come, participants and volunteers can meet a local coffee shop afterward.
