The NatureTrack at NTFF 2020 - It's still a day in the country! 5K Run winds through the quaint downtown, charming neighborhoods, and quiet countryside of Los Olivos, California. As you run, in addition to the beautiful views, you'll enjoy knowing that your race registration is supporting NatureTrack Foundation, an organization dedicated to fostering a lifelong fascination with nature through outdoor field trips for school-aged children.
Led by fun-loving, knowledgeable docents, each NatureTrack field trip allows children to explore, create, learn about, enjoy, and sometimes visit for the first time, a natural treasure in "their backyard." NatureTrack enhances a child's education and brings to life the history, ecology, biology, beauty, importance, and wonders of our natural environment.
Due to COVID-19, Los Olivos' Day in the Country Festival was canceled, and that is why we change the date of the 5K and Fun Run to coincide with the 2020 NatureTrack Film Festival. So, after the race, you can enjoy Los Olivos' most highly acclaimed film festival of the year. This year's festival will screen 76 nature-centric films from around the world. Awe-inspiring films that will excite you to connect or reconnect with nature. To learn more about the NatureTrack Film Festival, click HERE.
We hope you'll join us. It's an event you won't want to miss!
