Calling all runners! Adkins Arboretum will host its ninth annual Arbor Day Run Sat., April 5. Runners, walkers, families and nature enthusiasts are invited to enjoy this popular event at the Arboretum. Register by Sat., March 29 to save on registration fees.
Managed by TriSportsEvents and featuring a 5K Run, a 5K Walk, and a free Healthy Kids 100-yard dash, the Run is a wonderful opportunity to enjoy an early spring morning in nature. Participants will catch glimpses of spring as they traverse the cross-country trail plotted along the Arboretum’s network of scenic forest and meadow paths.
Awards will be presented for all events, and all 5K participants will receive an Arbor Day Run T-shirt. Post-race activities include refreshments, a nature project for children and a native tree raffle.
