Stockbridge City Councilman Elton Alexander cheers on participants at "Trails Alive."

Stockbridge “Trails Alive” event to encourage Henry residents to get fit

Stockbridge residents will highlight the importance of staying active and fit while also advocating for more Henry County sidewalks and walking paths at a “Trails Alive” event Saturday. 

Residents will gather from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Reeves Creek Trail, a 1.5 mile walking path  at 106 Jennings Way in Stockbridge. Activities will include walking, running and cycling, with participating bike teams from the Henry County Sheriff's Office, the Henry County Police Department and the Henry County Fire Department.

"The 2019 Trail Alive in Stockbridge will focus on health and wellness,” said Stockbridge City Councilman Elton Alexander, who is leading the event. “It's vital for communities to stay active. It's important that we continue to provide multi-use trails connecting our community so it continues to be a safe, walkable and pedestrian friendly city."

The activity is free and open to the community and will include refreshments, food and giveaway items. Veda Wright of Wright One Fitness will conduct a warm up class for participants.
