Each race will start at the Swan Lake Christian Camp overhead sign on the Swan Lake Christian Camp campgrounds. The finish will be marked with flags near the camp bell. You will be invited to ring the bell to signal your finish.
This year we named the 5K in honor of Billy Brockmueller. Billy loved running and loved Swan Lake Christian Camp. He lived his life as reflection of Jesus and was a great witness to many. We will never know why he was taken from us so soon, but we cherish the memories and the wisdom he left us.
