Where the Wild Things Run 5K and Kids Fun Run!
October 6, 2019 @ 8:30 am - 1:30 pm$20 – $35
Woodcock Nature Center welcomes runners, hikers and walkers of all ages at its annual Where the Wild Things Run 5K and Kids Fun Run on Sunday, Oct. 6. For several decades, this event has highlighted Woodcock’s nearly five miles of publicly accessible trails and raised money for the center’s educational programs.
The popular 5K kicks-off at 9 a.m. and is 90% trail with a mix of groomed trails, rugged trails and narrow bridges/boardwalks. A shorter 1K Kids Fun Run geared towards ages 6-and-up kicks-off at 8:30 a.m. is appropriate for walkers and runners of all ages.
After the Kids Fun Run families are invited to stick around for some unique post-race festivities on the nature center grounds including food, music, games, nature crafts, animal encounters, and more.
Race fees are $35 for the 5K and $20 for the Kids Fun Run. Race t-shirts will be provided to the first 100 registrants. Runners are encouraged to register in advance on the Woodcock website.
