The 3rd Annual Cherokee Chase run was a success!
Wow! we could not have picked better weather. In a month of cold, wet and icy conditions, last Saturday, the day of our Cherokee Chase Trail Run, turned out to be 70 degrees dry and sunny!
Approximately 90 runners came out to run through the beautiful trails and pastures of Cherokee Ridge Horse farm. Some came from as far as Alexandria and Lake Charles but all who came had a great time. The trails were in great shape thanks to all the guys at Cherokee who worked to clear the briars and fill in the big mud holes.
On the day volunteers came out and manned aid stations, helped with registration and worked the finish line. Four ATRO therapy horses and four other horses and their riders did their part by marshaling on the course, making sure that the runners knew which way to go. While back at the finish line, Walgreens Carencro store gave out water and Gator aid and had first aid supplies on hand. Next to them Colt Patin (chef and ATRO parent) cooked up his delicious Jambalaya for everyone to enjoy.
We would like to thank the runners, volunteers and of course our sponsors for making this event a big success for the 3rd year running!
