Event Description: We are back to racing in person! We also have a virtual option to run the 5K or 10K course between 8 am September 24th, 2021 and 5 pm October 2, 2021 using the mobile RaceJoy tracking app. Both courses are marked with signs and direction arrows, and the app tracks the courses using GPS points. Your start and finish times will be recorded and posted to the results automatically.
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.
Since 2006 ACORNS has provided financial and volunteer support for projects and programs that enhance and supplement the recreational, environmental and educational activities at the Genesee County parks. 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. Plans also include continued development of the Outdoor Learning Center.
