Event Description:  Join the ACORNS for a 5K walk/run and 10K trail race in the Genesee County Park & Forest on Sunday, October 6, 2019!

Walk or run on single and double track trails through the forest, along a creek and up and down rolling hills in the Genesee County Park & Forest, with an estimated 100 feet of climb in the 10K loop. Trails are very wide and easy to negotiate (minimal rocks and roots). The course starts on asphalt and then leads into the woods for a truly beautiful run through the countryside. All proceeds benefit ACORNS, a non-profit 501(c)(3) "friends of the park" group that supports Genesee County Parks by connecting people with opportunities for outdoor learning, exploration and fun.  Kids Fun Run! Free to youth 10 & under. Register on race day. Age-appropriate categories and distances. Everyone is a “winner”!  Free to youth 10 & under. Must register on race day. NEW THIS YEAR: 10K 2-PERSON RELAY TEAM EVENT! You and a friend, relative or colleague can join up to compete in a 2-person relay team over the 10K course. Each person will run approximately 5K. Best team time wins!

Our activities include staffing the Nature Interpretive Center, assisting at environmental education programs, funding displays at the Nature Interpretive Center, assisting with biological surveys, participating in trail and facilities maintenance, and funding a Volunteer Coordinator.
