Registration Now Open for Annual Scott Grugan Memorial Trail Run/Walk

The 6th Annual Scott Grugan Memorial 5K and One Mile Trail Run or Walk will take place on Saturday, October 20 at Flag Pole Hill, Huntingdon. The 5K Walk will start at 9:00 a.m.; the 5K Run will start at 10:00 a.m.; the one mile walk or run will start at 10:10 a.m. with a Kids Fun Run at the conclusion of the morning events.

Dr. Scott Grugan was the former chief radiologist at J.C. Blair who died tragically in 2005. He was not only a well-respected physician and member of the Huntingdon community, but also an avid runner and fitness enthusiast. In particular, Scott enjoyed running the trails of the Flag Pole Hill Trail System. The 5K course is a hilly, wooded trail which includes Juniata College's renowned "Peace Chapel," designed by Vietnam War Memorial architect Maya Lin.

Pre-registration forms may be downloaded from www.jcblair.org and mailed to the J.C. Blair Memorial Hospital Foundation. Register by October 5 at a discounted rate for a guaranteed long-sleeved t-shirt designed by Dr. Grugan's daughter Olivia and wife Pam. You can also register on race day for $5 more. Race day registration will begin at 8:30 a.m. at Flag Pole Hill on Saturday, October 20.

All proceeds raised will benefit the Scott Grugan Memorial Fund at J.C. Blair, which funds a Juniata College student pursuing a health career and supports healthy living initiatives in our community. For more information, call (814) 643-8548.
