Education group schedules second summer running event

Chris Jones has had a motto for the spring and summer months: “Healthy students are better learners." Jones, Friends of Moffat County Education president, has stressed that exercising also helps children in the classroom, and has used this belief as a reason to organize a series of 5K races in Craig. FMCE hosted a 5K during the Whittle the Wood Rendezvous weekend earlier this summer, with more than 100 participants. The event’s success prompted Jones and the local nonprofit education group to plan more races.
