It doesn't matter if you walk or run. Follow the trail to better health.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic the Park District will hold a four race trail series this year instead of a five race trail series. Please see below for more information on the changes. Whether you walk or run, you will be choosing a path to better health. All ages and abilities are welcome!
- April race date has been cancelled
- It is now a four-race series (not five)
- First race will be held on June 14 at Hobart Urban Nature Preserve (NOT Garbry Big Woods Reserve - this location has been eliminated for this year)
- The July, August and September races will be held as originally scheduled (original dates, times & locations)
All races are 5k with start time promptly at 9 a.m. and check-in starting at 8 a.m. Timing will be provided by Can't Stop Timing. Be sure to allow yourself enough time to get checked in and ready for the race. Basic health assessments provided by Miami County Public Health are offered at every race.

Sign up your group for the 2020 Trail Run Team Challenge. This is a great way to inspire members to get fit, healthy and outside. Encourage your company, neighborhood, family and/or friends to take this Challenge by signing up together as a team! The Team Challenge can compliment your healthy lifestyle by providing an opportunity to set and accomplish goals over a four-month period. Remember, the goal is better health, so you don’t have to be a runner to participate - walkers are welcomed!
The 2020 Team Challenge competition is based on your team's participation rate. If your team maintains a 65% participation rate over the first 3 races each team member will receive a Team Challenge award. The team with the highest participation rate over the entire series receives five free entries for the 2021 Trail Run Challenge and a 1 hour team outing at the corn maze at Lost Creek Reserve. Teams cannot be smaller than 10 people.
