Event Details

5K Trail Run

Goes through rugged single-track trails within the property of Cedar Run and a very small segment on the road. It is a beginner to intermediate mostly flat course with varied terrain and scenic views. This is a great course for first-time trail runners and families! This course is not designed for strollers and participants need to be able to maneuver through tree ruts, steps, bridges, soft sand, etc.

Half-Mile Stroll

Designed to allow all family members to participate! Less rugged trails suitable for strollers and young children.
