The Upper Thumb's 5ks

Caseville 5K – Run Around in the Upper Thumb

A friend of mine signed us up for a 5K run/walk during Cheeseburger festival several years ago. I’ll freely admit that I’m not into running or jogging. So it was a relief that he pointed out that we could walk it too. Which is what we did. The event turned out to be a lot of fun as we started out in Caseville County Park and traversed much of Caseville. Sadly we didn’t keep doing it. Well this year we have an opportunity to do it again. Here is our opportunities.
