Dash with us to help support our beautiful habitat and children’s nature-based education programs!
Interesting Course: This course is a beautiful 5k trail run/walk that begins in the parking lot behind Aurora Medical Center, which leads to a forested section of the Ice Age Trail. You will then enter ridges and swales, cross small bridges and trek through a secluded meadow. The last 3/4 of a mile runs along Columbus Street, crosses Hawthorne Avenue, and ends at our Nature Center.
Enjoy the uniqueness we offer and walk or run for a bit of healthy fun! 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! Check out the spring melt, new buds reaching skyward, and a natural uniqueness that only this 5K can offer.
Note: Spring trail runs can be muddy, so be prepared to get speckled!
Great idea: bring dry shoes for the ride home.
Finish Line Celebration! Snacks and drinks will be provided to all participants after the race with an award ceremony to follow. All children 12 and under will receive a wooden medallion for participation.
Sweet! A Bus Shuttle! We will shuttle Dashers back to Aurora Hospital between 11:15 a.m.-12:15 p.m.
