Get Back to NATURE!!! We will have two opportunities to come out and enjoy the beautiful trails that Mother Neff State Park has to offer. 

The 5K competitive run will begin at 8:30am sharp.  The trails in this race will give you a challenge.  Awards will be offered for overall male and female as well as the top 3 male and female in each age group.  Age groups include: 14 & under, 15-19, 20-24, 25-29, 30-34, 35-39, 40-44, 45-49, 50-54, 55-59, 60-69, 70 & up.

The 2 Mile Fun Run and 1 mile Kids Race will start at 2:00pm.  These trails will not be as challenging but just as beautiful.  Bring your family out to enjoy a trip through the park. Kids 1 mile will be timed, and runners will receive medals for top 12 finishers in each category boys and girls.  Kids 12 & under can sign up for the 1-mile race. 

EACH RACE will be capped at 150 participants due to parking restrictions. Register early to ensure your spot!  

The FIRST 200 Signups will receive our commemorative medallion and ALL PARTICIPANTS in 5k and 2 mile will receive t-shirt as long as registration is completed by February 6th.
