“I go, I go – swifter than the arrow from the Tartar’s bow!” -Ariel, The Tempest
Do you like running? Do you like beautiful scenery? Do you just want to see if you’re faster than an actor?
Whatever the answer may be, Will Run is for you!
Will Run is an annual race hosted by Great River Shakespeare Festival, usually during the month of July. Will Run is the only 28-furlong race (that we know of) in existence. 28 furlongs is just a little longer than a standard 5k, and follows the path around Lake Winona, offering competitors not only a fun race, but a beautiful view along the way! Company members usually participate, so you can try to outrun King Richard, or chase after that evasive sprite Ariel… don’t miss out on this unique event. Information about Will Run 2018 will be posted in spring of 2018.
