Course: Absolutely beautiful and challenging 5K & 15K trail runs that wind through the pines, oak hammocks, and lakes using single and double track trails in Trout Creek. You will also enjoy running on the elevated berm for something a little different. Both races start together. The 15K runners run a 10K loop before coming back by the start and running the tougher 5K section. The start is very unique and we think you'll love it. There are 4 waterstops on the 15K course.
Races start simultaneously at 8:30 a.m. and are held rain or shine.
Fundraiser: This race is a fundraiser for Wilderness Parks (includes Trout Creek, Flatwoods, and Morris Bridge). A donation of $5.00 will be made to the park for each runner at the Trout Creek Trail Run.
