This course is a beautiful 5k trail run/walk that begins in the parking lot behind Aurora Medical Center, which then leads to a section of the Ice Age Trail. You will walk/run through forested ridges and swales, across small bridges and through a secluded meadow. The last 3/4 of a mile runs along Columbus Street, crosses Hawthorne Avenue, and ends at our Nature Center.
This is a friendly race event at a bit of a slower pace due to the roots, surprise “trail trolls,” and natural terrain. Give it a go! And then sprint for time when you hit the street!
Youth participants 12 and under will automatically receive a discount during registration and be able to register for the price of $10.
