Meet Me at the Fountain 5K is what the name implies; a quick 5K through downtown Forest City starting and finishing beside the famous town fountain. The event is produced by Smith’s Drugs in Forest City. Each year they select several local nonprofits to benefit from the race.

Keep your maps in a plastic bag to protect them from the rain and know how to use them. GPS units are great, but they are not substitutes for knowing how to use a map and compass.
