Running club to tackle Russian River trail
The Peninsula Running Club will take a run on the Russian River trail Sunday. The run will go to Lower Russian Lake, then Russian River Falls, before heading back to the parking lot. All told, that's about 7 miles. The trail is handicapped accessible, so the footing should be good, and the club should be able to make the run work for all speeds.
The club will meet at 10 a.m. at the Fred Meyer parking lot and caravan or car pool to the trail head. There is no charge for doing the run, but bringing a drink and lunch is suggested. Those who plan on doing the run should call Mindee at 283-3954 for more information.
Kenai Firefighters Golf Tourney tees off Saturday
The 11th annual Kenai Firefighters Association Golf Tournament is slated for Saturday with an 8 a.m. shotgun start.
The entry fee of $75 covers greens fees at the Kenai Golf Course as well as plenty of food and drink. Players on the first-place team will receive $125, and other cash awards will be based on the number of teams participating.
Those interested can pick up forms at the golf course or fire department, and players can sign up as late as the day of the tournament. If players can't find a team, one will be found for them.
Proceeds go to help the Kenai Peninsula Safe Kids Injury Prevention Programs and the Kenai Firefighters Association.
