Walk a 10K at state park

The NorthStar Trail Travelers (NSTT) will sponsor a walking event at Lake Carlos State Park near Alexandria on Sunday, May 6. It will take place at the park's Visitor Center.

Walkers can start any time from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m., finishing by 3 p.m. The event is sanctioned for 10K.

NSTT provides non-competitive walking events in Minnesota state parks, giving incentives to walkers by offering awards. It also provides a record book system to keep track of distance walked and number of events done.

NSTT also sponsors "Give Back to the Parks" program, where participants make a monetary donation to the park. The club then matches it up to $50 per park. It also sponsors a workday twice a year to help a park with a project or cleaning up.
