The Warder Literacy Center has suggested routes for individuals to run/walk and has provided maps for participants. Suggested routes include George Roger’s Clark Park, Old Reid Park, Heritage Trail, Eagle City Soccer Field or any local school track.
Huber said that in previous years the Ghost Run was held at Snyder Park and registration was $25. This year, organizers decided to adjust the price because it is virtual, she said.
Proceeds from the run will go towards three service programs at the Warder Literacy Center. Huber explained that the programs help school-aged children that are at least two years behind in reading and writing, adults that are struggling with reading, writing and even math and foreign learners.
“As a nonprofit we really need those funds to help us keep our programs going at an affordable rate for our students," Huber said.
Even though the run is virtual, participants will receive medals if they submit their times. Participants will also have a chance to win awards based on the costume that they run in. Huber said participants should post a picture of their costume in the DIY Ghost Run’s Facebook page the day they decide to run.
