The 5K timed run will take you through almost all of the trails in park (Yellow Trail, White Trail, Red Trail and one of the two Maintenance Trails); (see 2022 map on the race website as a sample for now). A 1K walk route will be marked; walkers can choose their distance between the 1K or 5K routes. Leashed dogs are permitted in accordance with park rules.
CAUTION: trails are maintained but preserved in their natural state. You may find uneven surfaces, leaves, branches, roots and other elements typical of this type of environment. Please wear appropriate closed-toe footwear and exercise outdoor-activity caution.
Our 2022 event held in February 2022 included a wellness theme with related nonprofits/vendors. This event will be expanded from just a general wellness theme to a wellness-through-art/nature/outdoors theme. A variety of nonprofits, vendors and sponsors will be on hand to share their like-minded missions with event participants/attendees.
Food trucks will be on site, possibly music too. We are looking into post-race beer as an additional refreshment for participants.
Race Shirts are guaranteed to participants who sign up by midnight on 1/31/24. Thereafter additional shirts will be available in a limited quantity on a first come, first served basis at the check-in booth on the morning of the race, prior to the start of the race. In-person awards and post-race refreshments will also be given out.
