This event is a fundraiser benefiting children’s environmental education programs and land management programs at Woodland Dunes Nature Center & Preserve.

Overall, the course is a flat, wooded and beautiful 5K trail run! The race begins in the parking lot behind the Aurora Health Center which leads to a section of the Ice Age Trail. This trail leads participants 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 Ave. and ends at Woodland Dunes Nature Center. Snacks and drinks will be provided to all participants and a small award ceremony will follow. Sorry, dogs are not allowed on the course. Strollers are not recommended on the Ice Age Trail. A bus will shuttle participants back to Aurora Medical Center between 11:15-12:15.
