June 17 @ 5:30 pm – 6:30 pm

Tuesday, June 17 at 5:30pm, everyone is invited to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the first Apollo moon mission with the Kalamazoo Air Zoo at Hackley Public Library!  Investigate how gravity keeps the moon in orbit around the Earth and what it takes to escape Earth’s gravity to get to the Moon. Experience the creation of moon craters and the challenges involved in landing safely on the varied surface of the Moon. Learn about current and future missions to other moons and planets in our solar system. Up, up and away! This event is free to the public.  For more information call (231) 722-8000.

Ragnar: Chase the Moon

June 17 @ 8:30 pm – 11:00 pm

Monday, June 17 from 8:30pm – 11:00pm, join Pigeon Hill Brewing Co. and Run Muskegon for a challenge of interstellar proportions! Runners all over the country will team up to accomplish something that could never be done alone – run enough miles to circle the moon 20 times!  For every lap made around the moon, Ragnar will donate to the 100 Mile Club. So grab some friends, run a few miles, and do some good. To join, register for the Chase the Moon at: https://challenges.runragnar.com/2019/chase-the-moon-2019/#challenge .

The event is free to pledge to run! Participants can kick it up a notch and reward themselves and register for the virtual run and receive a glow in the dark medal and Chase the Moon T-shirt!  A Ragnar ambassador will be at the event with some giveaways!  Sunset is scheduled for 9:27pm, so you’ll catch an awesome sunset over the lake and finish the run in the dark!  For more information, e-mail runmuskegon@gmail.com.
