Moonlight Hoot Scoot
Friday, October 21, 2016
A fundraiser for the International Owl Center.
1 mile Fun Run (7:00 PM) and 5K Race (7:45 PM)
on the Root River Trail, starting and ending in Trailhead Park in Houston, MN
Enjoy a night run (or walk) in nature on the Root River Trail, lit by luminaries. Each participant receives a reusable lighted bracelet to wear as well as a T-shirt featuring the Hoot Scoot logo.
Participants are encouraged to wear an owl costume or owl clothing during the run. Everyone who does will receive a special treat, and the person with the best costume will receive an award.
There will also be photo opportunities with our owl mascot, Hooston.
Expect owl-themed refreshments at the finish.
