Join the Friends for a community challenge to warm you up through the chilly winter months, doing what we know how to do best — reading! Starting January 1st, compete against your friends, family, and fellow Ferndaliens to read 5,000 pages. Audiobooks, ebooks, and regular ol’ paper books count toward your total.
We will have three races this year.
5K: Adults who complete 5000 pages
Kids 5K: Kids who complete 5000 pages
Fun run: Anyone who don’t quite hit their goal, but had fun reading
