Join us this weekend for the Youth Zone Ascent – taking kids to the top of Iron Mountain at the Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park. The two local companies are partnering to host the First Annual 5K Race on Saturday, October 8. Participants are invited to run, hike, bike or segway from Two Rivers Park up to Glenwood Caverns, where they can enjoy a full day of fun for a great deal with a 50% off Funday Pass!
If you are biking or riding a Segway, meet at Two Rivers at 9:00 am. If you are hiking or running, the start time is 9:30 am. You can also take the Scenic Tram if you feel like a more relaxed ride up; it’s all just about having fun! The entry fee is $25 if you register online before the race, or $30 on race day. All proceeds go to supporting Youth Zone Ascent. You’ll get a t-shirt and a breakfast burrito to start your day off right as part of your entry fee.
YouthZone Ascent has been around since the 1970’s and is an important organization in our community. They are focused on providing services to youths ages 6 to 18 years, and provide services to more than 1,000 young people a year. Originally founded by a group of parents concerned about drug use among youths, YouthZone Ascent provides recreational activities as well as information and education about the dangers of drug use. They focus on three areas of assistance: prevention, intervention, and volunteerism. YouthZone Ascent is committed to the health and well-being of our young people, and the 5K race is a great way to support them while also getting some exercise and getting some thrills at the park!
For more information or to register, visit Youth Zone Ascent. For information on all cave tours, rides and attractions available with the Funday Pass, head to Glenwood Caverns’ website. We hope to see you on Saturday for 5K and a day worth of good times for a good cause!

(The students will be at their assigned places at 8:30am. Last year more people were gracious to judge, so we were done with all events before 2 pm and several were done by noon.)
Many of you have judged and know what to expect. For those of you who have not judged in the past PLEASE consider joining us Monday, October 3rd. WE NEED
JUDGES as well as behind the scene helpers. The good part is, you do not need to be a “seated” judge to participate. “Regular” people make the best judges, and the students appreciate the effort that everyone makes.
