Starting and finishing at The Gregory School (formerly St. Gregory’s) on Craycroft south of River, participants will follow the tranquil multi-use Rillito River Path, avoiding motor vehicle traffic on the streets.

Proceeds from the event benefit Ben’s Bells Project and MyTeam Triumph. Ben’s Bells is a community art project that demonstrates and encourages kindness. MyTeam Triumph is an athlete ride-along program created for children and adults with disabilities who would normally not be able to experience athletic events.

Jeannette and Amy from Ben’s Bells visited The Morning Blend to talk about the upcoming El Tour Adventure Run / Walk on September 12th! Sign up today!
Can’t wait to see you all out there!
