If you enjoy running for a good cause, you still have a few hours to sign up for the 2nd Annual Red Gold 5K Run to Crush Hunger on Saturday, October 12. The run (and family walk) begins at 9:00 a.m. in Callaway Park. Registration closes at noon today on Thursday, October 10, however, so click here to register now if you’re interested before the window closes. Unfortunately, we cannot get you a discount on registration, so the cost is $25 if you’re interested.
If you read this post after the deadline or if you just aren’t all that interested in waking up early Saturday for a 5K, you can still check out the 28th Annual Red Gold Chili Cook-Off after the race. Historic downtown Elwood will play host to the event from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. at the Municipal Building. Over 30 teams will be competing to whip up the best-tasting chili for cash prizes provided by Red Gold. The price to enjoy this chili is a great price for lunch, so we’re going to call it chili on the cheap. Two cups of chili can be yours for $1, or you can pay $5 for 12 cups and truly tour the cook-off.
Click here for more details about both the Red Gold Run to Crush Hunger and the Chili Cook-Off, and we will hope to see you in Elwood this Saturday.
