Community enjoyed biking, running races

Morrison Rotary's Harvest Hammer race has become a rewarding community project. We are proud to promote fitness and a healthy lifestyle. 

The success would not be possible without the community's unselfish cooperation. Without athletes, young and old, working toward personal records, there would not be a Harvest Hammer. We are grateful to the neighbors who endured the intrusion of more than 500 runners and bikers. More than 100 volunteers made this event a success! Proceeds benefit local youth, education, and community and Morrison Rotary Club International projects.

We thank participants, supporting spectators and local business who advertised, Community State Bank for the use of their facility for organizational meetings and assisting with registration, and Morrison Schools for use of school property.

Special thanks to race day announcer Don Beswick; Sterling-Rock Falls Amateur Radio Society for communications; City, County, and State Police for traffic control; Lions Club, Morrison High School Key Club, Friends of the Park, Morrison Institute of Technology students, Mount Carroll Rotarians, Morrison Rotarians and spouses, Morrison teachers and community volunteers.
