Event Description

Celebrate Center Hill Dam’s 75th anniversary by participating in the 2023 Center Hill Dam Five Miler, 5 Mile run! 

This race starts at Center Hill Recreation Area which boasts a scenic vantage point of Center Hill Dam.  The run continues over Center Hill Dam towards then enters Edgar Evins State Park.  As you enter the State Park a native pollinator corridor hugs the roads as you travel to the Visitor Center Office.  The route in both directions has challenging points due to road inclines.


Participants who wish to run or walk are both welcome at the Center Hill Dam Five Miler.


Our goal is to provide a quality outdoor recreational event to celebrate Center Hill Dam’s anniversary while raising funds to assist with needs at Edgar Evins State Park.
