Dear Woods and Lakes Runners,

We are excited to announce that the 43rd Annual Woods and Lakes Run will be held on October 30, 2021 at 10AM. This will be the first ever Woods and Lakes Run run amidst the beautiful fall foliage of Birchwood Lake and the Tourne, and our first Halloween Eve run (feel free to run in your most spooktacular costume!). We missed seeing all of you last year, and we hope to see you in the fall. Stay safe and healthy.

Best wishes and happy running,

Bob Wagmiller and the Idiosyncratic Committee
