PLYMOUTH — The Circle Program's annual Circle Trot — a 2k/5k/10k run and walk — will take place Sunday, April 28, beginning at 9:30 a.m.
The event, sponsored by Plymouth State University's Center for Active Living and Healthy Communities, will start at the PSU Ice Arena and Welcome Center. The joint goal of the race, for both Circle and the university, is to promote physical fitness, healthy living, and friendly competition, while providing family fun and financial support for the Circle Program. The center has written the Circle Trot into the PSU curriculum for graduate and undergraduate study for future health and physical education practitioners with the goal of providing a trained workforce that will encourage community wellness.
Similar to the Mayhew Program, the Circle Program offers girls a residential summer camp experience and year-round mentoring program. New participants are encouraged to run or walk with a partner or team. All ages and ability levels are welcome, but the number of participants is limited to three hundred.
