Maple Syrup Fun Run and Pancake Brunch -- Sunday!

Fun Run & Pancake Brunch

Gather at River Bend for our annual spring events: the Maple Syrup Fun Run and the Pancake Brunch. The Fun Run includes a 10K trail run, 5K trail run, and a one-mile walk around our prairie. Fun Run participants' entry fees include admission to our Pancake Brunch after the run, and a Fun Run t-shirt (while supplies last). Register this week for your last chance at early bird registration discounts on our Maple Syrup Fun Run website.

Also on Sunday, our Pancake Brunch makes its triumphant return! The Pancake Brunch features pancakes drizzled (or drenched) with River Bend's own, handmade maple syrup, sausages, o.j., coffee, and milk. This is one of only a couple of times each year that the public can taste our maple syrup and we don't offer it for sale so don't let this tasty opportunity pass you by! The brunch is open from 10am to 1pm. Tickets may be purchased online, from a River Bend board member, or at the door.

See you Sunday!
