Restoration Run 2018 Recap: Thank You Sponsors!

On a recent brisk Sunday morning, more than 60 runners and a dedicated group of volunteers gathered at Meadowood Park for MDTU's primary annual fundraising event, the Restoration Run 5k along the Jones Falls! With the support of our generous sponsors and runners, the chapter raised over $15,000 this year, which will directly benefit our conservation projects and education programs. This is the 9th annual Restoration Run, and the event has now generated over $90,000 for Trout Unlimited's mission locally!

Congratulations to first-place winners Kyle Langdell in the Men's category and Lora Peters in the Women's category, Race Director Jay Boynton, and all of the runners and volunteers that make this event such a success. Special thanks to C.B. Heinemann and Charlie MacVicar of the band Dogs Among the Bushes for providing live music by the fire, and to Tom Gamper for delivering his traditional dramatic reading of W.B. Yeats to set the festive pre-race mood!

MDTU greatly appreciates the contributions of our sponsors listed above. Please make a point of thanking these businesses personally for their support if you have an opportunity.

And start training now for the 10th annual event in 2019!
