Course Maps

All three courses (10K, 5K, and 1K) start and end behind the Main Shelter.

The 10K and 5K courses head west and do the “5K course” course. The 5K runners/walkers will go directly to the shelter to finish, the 10K runners will go onto the east side to do the second half of the 10K segment.  Courses will be clearly marked with flags and signage. The kids 1K course is the Valley Loop path and the kids will have a friendly animal leader and several “sweeps” so no one gets lost.

Take a peak at the 2023 T-shirt!

This year’s unisex shirt is is a cotton/poly blend and we think you will love how comfortable it is! The shirt has a “fashion fit” a bit narrower than a basic tee, but we recommend getting your usual size.



Volunteers–We need volunteers and BAKERS to help with this race, please email Executive Director if you want to help on the course or bake some cookies or muffins 🙂  Start looking for your favorite muffin recipe!
