The McKaig Nature Center will be hosting its annual 5k Trail Run and Monkey Rock Miler on Oct 6th, 2019.
The race will begin at the Old Roberts Schoolhouse as runners separate through the grass fields before entering the beautiful trails of the nature center. Once inside, racers will experience a challenging yet scenic course that runs through streams, up rocky elevations, through grassy meadows and over bridges. Find out firsthand why this has been deemed one of the most unique and challenging 5Ks in the region. The numbers have grown each year since it's inception in 2016 and this year it will be limited to 150 racers, so don't hesitate!
What you can expect:
*A memorable race with great people helping a worthy cause
*Custom one of a kind award for the winner
*A beautiful and challenging course
*Custom age group award medals
*A race shirt you'll actually want to wear
*A lively festival area with complementary food and beverage and vendors giving away free stuff
Walkers will enjoy a scenic journey to Monkey Rock to ring the cast iron bell and then return to the festival area for a morning of fun.
