Making Connections on the Trails!
Trails for a community offers so many things! It’s a way to connect with nature, wind down from a busy or stressful day, catch up with friends, family or just spend a little time by yourself. You can walk, run, jog, bike, race or even paddle your way along.
For the Bluffton Parks & Recreation Department, we definitely utilize it more for special events, particularly running events. There is nothing more fun than seeing a couple hundred women of all ages, shapes and sizes dressed in crazy outfits walking, running, jogging, pushing strollers or pulling wagons with children all while enjoying the annual Chicks Fun Run 5K! What better way to connect with others than a silly, just for fun, “race”! It’s not about how fast you finish, it’s all about connection. That’s what trails are, connections.
