Beaver Chase Running Series Presented by Bushtukah

The Beaver Chase Series was initiated back in 1994 as a once monthly low key event designed to get people of abilities out running. The 2k and 6k distances make it attractive for all ages. It got its name at the very first Beaver Chase Series event, where the lead runner was approaching a footbridge over a small creek. A beaver scurried out of the water and chased the lead runner to the bridge and then stood and watched as all the runners past by.
