About the Event – 25th Annual!
The Summer Sunset 5K and Youth 1 Mile events are hosted by the Fox River Trail Runners to raise funds for the FRTR Youth Scholarship Fund and local charities. Since the scholarship fund inception, we have given out over $100,000.00 to local youth who demonstrated great academics, volunteering in their communities and of course their love for all things running! We ask, if you are able, to continue to support this cause and give a donation above the entrance fee for the race.
