Midlands Family Medicine will present the third annual Happy Trails Run on Saturday, May 12 at the North Platte Recreation Center, beginning at 8 a.m.
The run will include a competitive 5k, 15k and Children’s mile, making it an event for an entire family. Online entries are open at www.platteriverfitness.com.

Nichols said the North Platte Trails Network, formerly known as The North Platte Trails Committee, re-grouped in 2010 and added several new members. Since that time, they have hosted multiple events to promote trails and continue to work on trails in North Platte, including the Canal Trail and South Park Trails.
Sponsors for the Happy Trails Run include the presenting sponsor, Midlands Family Medicine, with support from NebraskaLand National Bank and First National Bank- North Platte.
