& Monkey Rock Miler
Sunday, October 6th, 2019, 9am
McKaig Nature Education Center is thrilled to be hosting its 4th annual McKaig 5k Trail Race! This race keeps getting bigger every year, and the event continues to provide an amazing experience for trail runners, hikers, and people who love the outdoors.
Become a race sponsor!
Sponsoring McKaig’s annual 5K Trail Race exposes your organization to a large and active community who regularly visit the trails and follow events on social media and the website.
This energetic event will have an anticipated 125-150 racers plus their cheering sections. There will be a post-race festival featuring food, entertainment, and sponsor booths, where you can showcase your organization directly to attendees.
The mission of this beautiful park and longtime home to hikers, dog walkers, families and runners, is to provide an education in environmental and nature studies to students and organizations- an education that can not be taught in classrooms or on screens. Some annual happenings at McKaig include:
*Outdoor adventure programs- orienteering, birding, & guided hikes
*Girl & Boy Scout Programs
*Family Fun- Ghost Stories, Opt-Outside Black Fridays, Eclipe Viewing Parties
*Our Festival Under the Stars annual Gala, and much more, including corporate service days and hosting science classes and students working on environmental projects
The success of this event depends, in part, on the generous investments from our sponsors. Not only is this a great advertising opportunity for you, but your donations will help support our biggest fundraiser, and go a long way in enabling student environmental educational programs, as well as maintenance projects that will ensure the long-term sustainability of this park for generations to come. McKaig is run by volunteers with revenue obtained from memberships, grants, and fundraising activities.
Now is the time to get your organization significant online, print and trailhead exposure and goodwill! Please help your organization and ours by supporting this great local cause with financial contributions or in‐kind donations.
We thank you for your support!
All the best,
Karl Woodeshick, Race Director & Board Member
