Competitive runners, and people who just enjoy a stroll in the
verdant countryside, are invited to take part in the 7th Annual Off
the Beaten Path on Saturday, April 28, 2018 in Murphys Community
Park. The money raised will go to support Mind Matters, the
Murphys-based non-profit clinic that treats autism and other
learning disorders.

The multifaceted event will feature a 10k run that will take
participants down Six Mile Road, past Ironstone Vineyards, and
back. The run is open to men and women of all ages. Medallions
will be awarded to first-, second- and third-place winners.
Participants who would rather walk and chat than run are
encouraged to do so. The 5k course will be to Ironstone and
back. Families are welcome to bring their tricycles, bicycles,
strollers, etc., and join the fun.

“We walk and run in celebration and support of those who
have autism spectrum disorders, attention deficit hyperactivity
disorders (ADD/ADHD), and learning disabilities and walk off
the beaten path,” event organizer Nancy Tiffany said.
Check-in time will start at 8am. Runners and walkers may
register on-line at the clinic website
or by calling 209.728.2184.

The entry fee for adults is $30, $15 for children 7 to
