2nd Saturdays

2nd Saturday events are a fun recreational activity for all ages.

2nd Saturday events are a fun recreational activity for all ages.

Second Saturdays is a monthly series of events on the Grinnell Area Recreation Trail (GART) that runs May through September.  Each event includes a 5K run/walk and a 5K, 10K or 20K bike ride. A short 1k fun run for small children also adds to the fun. There are monthly prizes for registered participants, plus a Grand Prize drawing from all participants at the final event each year.  Every time you participate you increase your chances of winning the Grand Prize in September.  It’s great fun for all ages and a wonderful way to get out and enjoy the trail.

Participation is free to all Imagine Grinnell members (click here for membership info) and children under 18 and $5 for non-members. Start time is 9am on the trail in  front of Grinnell High School on Sunset Avenue. Look for the Imagine Grinnell tent and the group of friendly people there to encourage you!

Check out our Facebook album of photos from 2nd Saturdays and other Imagine Grinnell events. (You do not have to have a Facebook account to see the photos.) If you belong to Facebook, be sure to become a FAN of Imagine Grinnell while you’re there!
