Innovation can be challenging, and attempting to create something from scratch is no easy feat. That is why Outdoor 76 is turning to the community in search of volunteers for their inaugural Fall Celebration downtown on Oct. 10.
The day-long event, which includes The Naturalist Trail Race, a 25 or 50k race from Outdoor 76 along the Bartram Trail to Wayah Bald, a chili cook off, live music, and more, will run from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. and is open to the whole community. To make the event a reoccurring successful endeavor for Franklin, Outdoor 76 is enlisting the help of volunteers.
"We need a total of 30 to 40 volunteers," said Rob Gasbarro, co-owner of Outdoor 76. "Because of the duration of the event – starting registration for the trail race at roughly 7 a.m. and the last of the 50K runners not coming in till close to 7 p.m. – there will be all different shifts."
