This year, we will have a special ‘kid cheer block’ set up at the pavilion (with supervision) for you to cheer on the 6k racers!

Awards will be given to the fastest two men and women in each age group and the male and female winner of the race! There will also be an award given to the fastest stroller to cross the finish line. After the race, enjoy light food, refreshments and music! Proceeds from our race will go towards clean water solutions for those who currently lack clean water. Thank you for your participation in making a dent in the world water crisis!
Not a serious runner? No problem! We have our share of serious racers, but we have a lot of people like you who care about people in need around the world and just want to make a tangible difference in the world. Run it, walk it, push a stroller – we’re all changing the world together. (The trail is completely paved so wheels work well.)
