Event Description: This year's event is being held virtually between 8 am October 1 and 5 PM October 31 using the RaceJoy tracking app. At any time during that period, run or walk the ACORNS 5K or run the 10K course at Genesee County Park & Forest using the mobile (phone-based) 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.

Post your results then share a picture of yourself on the course on our Facebook page and you will be included in a random drawing for prizes.
