The course: 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.

Dogs are not allowed on this course. Strollers are not recommended.

Finish line celebration: Snacks and drinks will be provided to all participants after the race with a small award ceremony to follow. All children 12 and under will receive a wooden medallion for participation.
